520    On January 15, 2009, a US Airways Airbus A320 had just 
       taken off from LaGuardia Airport in New York when a flock 
       of Canada Geese collided with it, destroying both of its 
       engines. Over the next three minutes, the plane's pilot, 
       Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, managed to glide it to a 
       safe landing in the Hudson River. It was an instant media 
       sensation-the "Miracle on the Hudson"-and Captain Sully 
       was the hero. But how much of the success of this dramatic
       landing can actually be credited to the genius of the 
       pilot? To what extent is the "miracle" on the Hudson the 
       result of extraordinary-but not widely known, and in some 
       cases quite controversial-advances in aviation and 
       computer technology over the past twenty years?In Fly by 
       Wire, journalist William Langewiesche takes us on a 
       strange and unexpected journey into the fascinating world 
       of advanced aviation. From the testing laboratories where 
       engineers struggle to build a jet engine that can 
       systematically resist bird attacks, through the creation 
       of the A320 in France, to the political and social forces 
       that have sought to minimize the impact of the 
       revolutionary fly-by-wire technology, William Langewiesche
       assembles the untold stories necessary to truly understand
       the "miracle" on the Hudson, and makes us question our 
       assumptions about human beings in modern aviation.
