"Sully" Expected to Get Two-Part Treatment During Sunday's "60 Minutes" from TVNewser
CBS sent us this image of Katie Couric interviewing Capt. Chesley Sullenberger and the entire crew of US Airways Flight 1549. This part of the 60 Minutes interview was conducted Monday at one of US Airway's maintenance hangars at Charlotte-Douglas International airport.
TVNewser has learned Sunday's story will most likely be a two-parter, a rarity for 60 Minutes. But when the show lands a big story, they have been known to take the extra time to tell it. Couric also talked with Sullenberger and this wife at their home in California last week and the show assembled more than 50 passengers along with the crew during Monday's taping in Charlotte.

Material Found in Engines of downed US Airways A320 Identified as Bird Remains from
NTSB investigators have found bird remains in both engines from the US Airways A320 that ditched into the Hudson River on January 15, according to analysis of the organic material found inside the airplanes’ CFM56-5B turbofans. The Safety Board has sent the material from both engines to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, where it expects further analysis to identify the particular bird species involved. &; As part of its investigation into this accident, the NTSB investigated an engine surge event that occurred in the right engine during a flight two days before the accident. The engine recovered from the surge and the remainder of the flight proceeded without incident. The NTSB blamed the surge on a faulty temperature sensor, which mechanics replaced following approved procedures. US Airways returned the aircraft to service only after an examination with a boroscope found no...

Mike's Malevolent Machines. from AeroHub by admin
(A light-hearted series covering little-known, or almost forgotten (forgettable?), aircraft that had some interesting historic or technical aspect about them, and from which, generally, we may have learned some lessons as to how to do things better….or perhaps how not to do them!
From the twisted aeronautical mind of Mike Feeney, Hamilton, New Zealand. Comment, critique and, particularly, correction, will be intensely resented but grudgingly replied to.)
To commence our 2009 season of aircraft which are, not only much lesser known than most production types, but which had some aspect which makes them worth taking a look at, I proffer this machine which issued from a company we have examined previously. As there are quite a number of Brits who receive these offerings, I must first reassure them that I am not intentionally picking on your illustrious aeronautical forebears. Some of my best chums (and a chumette who could have been a twin of Ava Gardner!) have been from your cute, dinky green fields or "dark satanic mills". And how can one not like a race of people who civilised most of the globe with that ...
