NTSB Hearing

Today began the first of three days of hearings at the National Transporation Safety Board (NTSB) for the crash landing into the Hudson River of US Airways Flight 1549 on January 15.  Captain Chesley B. Sullenberger III and passenger Billy Campbell were the first witnesses to testify before the Board today. 

A NTSB advisory provides information on the hearings, including links to the public docket, agenda, and live webcast.

From its website, “[t]he National Transportation Safety Board is an independent U.S. Federal agency that investigates every civil aviation accident in the United States and significant accidents in the other modes of transportation, conducts special investigations and safety studies, and issues safety recommendations to prevent future accidents.”
