When U.S. Airways Flight 1549 splashed landed in the Hudson last month, officials from NYC to D.C. thought it might be terrorism. According to a lengthy NY Times article, officials emergency response systems created in the wake of September 11, 2001. Former Senator Bob Kerrey, who was on the 9/11 Commission, said of the 9/11 attacks, "The airlines knew what was going on, but the Federal Aviation Administration didn’t. Then, the F.A.A. knew, and the White House didn’t. Then, nobody on the local level knew that there were planes, hijacked, on a collision course with the Eastern Seaboard.” Of the "Miracle on the Hudson," the Times writes, "There were oddities, luck and examples of teamwork. Some things seemed to work well. Certainly Flight 1549 revealed the networks of communications that have built up since 9/11. But the implications of the early judgment that the crash was a freak accident might well garner significant scrutiny," since officials believed the "bird strike" cause early on.
