Feb 8th 2010 10:17AM I'm a retired U.A. mechanic and this may be just the tip of the NTSB iceberg.
A lot of us (mechanics) and retired pilots as well, have wondered about the eventual ruling outcome of Sully's Hudson River landing. So far, there has been no media or NTSB mention of possible computer engine shutdown on his plane due to loss of Inlet pressure and inlet temperature, sensors at the instant of the bird strike.
If the computer sees no airflow past the engine inlet sensors isn't it possible the result of such a loss might be for the CDC to automatically cut off fuel supply and ignition as well?
Maybe the original FAA certification of these systems, as designed, needs to be addressed?........JB
