Two days before US Airways Flight 1549 crashed into the Hudson River, passengers on the same route and same aircraft say they heard a series of loud bangs and the flight crew told them they could have to make an emergency landing, CNN has learned.
Members of Congress and aviation safety experts yesterday criticized NASA's refusal to release the results from an extensive survey of pilots that may help pinpoint potential safety lapses in the country's aviation network.
The reaction came in response to attempts by the Associated Press to obtain a copy of the database, which contains the results of more than 20,000 telephone interviews with airline and general aviation pilots. It is not known what the surveys uncovered.
NASA officials told the AP, which reported that it requested the database more than 14 months ago, that they would not release the information because it might shake the public's confidence in the airlines.
NASA Releases Cryptic Airline Safety Study
NASA on Monday dumped 29,000 lines of raw data onto the Internet to fulfill a promise to release information about the safety of air travel. NASA declined to say what the data meant/, but previously, the space agency had refused to release the information at all because it feared scaring the public and hurting the aviation industry.
On Monday, he complied — with a data set that has been broken down into long columns, mostly zeroes, stripped of information that could put it into a real context.

Bush starts his regime with a downer event....... 911 death and destruction in NY.
Barrack begins his reign with an upbeat event........ hero's and survivors in NY.
The crash is a real anomaly. Everything so perfect. Supposedly you don't survive these plane crashes.
Supposedly the Trade Towers were designed to survive a plane crash and did not.
Two plane events...... 911 and now Flight 1549. One a disaster the other a miracle. Curses and blessings... Sounds just like an Old Testament message from "God".
