NTSB: Bird remains in both engines of Flight 1549
Both engines of the US Airways flight that ditched last month into the Hudson River contained bird remains, the National Transportation Safety Board said Wednesday.
The engines from US Airways Flight 1549 had been sent to the manufacturer in Cincinnati, Ohio, where the NTSB directed the analysis, it said in a news release.
In addition, material from both engines was sent to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington for identification of the bird species.
All 155 passengers and crew members on board survived the January 15 incident, CNN reported.
