Last Friday was the one year anniversary of the day that US Airways Flight 1549 crashed into the Hudson River. The Airbus 320 plane crashed crashed after the plane hit a flock of geese and lost power in both engines. Fortunately, the pilots were able to guide the plane to the ground safely during the the ninety (90) seconds between the time the plane lost power and when it crashed into the water.
Syracuse plane crashes are rare. The odds of being on a fatal airline flight are 1 in 8,500,000. That being said, planes do crash for various reasons, including pilot error, traffic control error, weather, fire, plane design flaws, negligent jet maintenance and mechanical failures.
