Basically, a Hydraulic failure forced CO flight 512 enroute to POP from EWR to return to EWR. The plane was a 73G. FAA spokesman says the plane returned safely using the reduntant systems of the aircraft. By using the redundant systems, does that mean all hydraulics were lost? Here is the link as posted on the web

Uh, no. If -all- systems had been lost, there would have been nothing "redundant" to use...

The 737NG family has a system-A and a system-B, plus a standby rudder system. Must hydraulic system failures involve A or B. It sounds like they lost -one- of those, and were able to return safely using the remaining system..
