I'm so glad to hear that both engines were out as a result of incredible mis fortune and not a possible mistake.

Can you imagine the far reaching ramnifications if it had been a mistake?

Glad to hear it for the crew!

Just thinking out loud here. Given the extreme rarity of a dual engine flameout, do you think LGA should have shutdown ops to examine the fuel truck that 1594 had received? I know it looks like birds took out both engines, but what if it had been fuel contamination?

Most likely more planes would have reported problems.

Nice to hear the crew did in fact do a great job.

My understand was that they reported the birdstrike, and stated they lost power as a result of the strike. May be wrong, but I think that I heard that. If that was the case, why on earth would they want to shut down the airport to check fuel?

This is from an article currently posted on CNN: "Sullenberger had been scheduled to give his first public interview on Monday morning to NBC "Today" show host Matt Lauer, but the appearance was canceled Sunday at the request of the U.S. Airline
Pilots Association.
Stephen Bradford, president of the association, said he asked Sullenberger not to engage in any media activities because the pilots association has "interested party" status with the NTSB, which allows it to participate in the investigation."

Looks like FO Bradford is upset at all of the attention that the Capt Sullenberger is receiving. He probably cringes at all of the constant references to Capt Sullenberger's work with the ALPA Safety Committee. Once again demonstrating what a complete tool he is (Bradford). They prob threatened Capt Sullengerger with a lawsuit if he continued to discuss his association and work with ALPA.

Raoul,

I think that the article states that Captain Sullenburger was "asked" by the USAPA president. Not that the USAPA President "demanded" or "threatened".

It's only smart for him not to go public just yet. I really don't see a problem with waiting for the NTSB investigation to run it's course before Capt. Sullenburger does any public interviews.

All USAPA does is demand and threaten. A sure sign of insecurity.

By the way, how are they doing with getting Yosemite Sam his job back after bein' the rootin'-ist tootin'-ist gunslinger in the air?

USAPA doesn't have the civility or class to "ask" anyone for anything. They thrive off the drama.

Why should the NTSB offer the group to participate in something safety related after their grandstanding USA Today ad?

Some just can't seem to grow up....

You kinda expect this from high school kids and monkeys throwing poop at one another.

Theres no way you could say just all the "rhetoric" is there?
