I was just trying to go to the US Airways website when it came up with two links, including one to a page that had this on it:

Does anybody know anything about this? Nothing comes up on their regular homepage about it. The weird part is that the date is in August; I just did a Google search and couldn't find anything. Anyone know what's going on?

The NTSB does not investigate all events. There is a list of criteria that must be met before they even get involved. Same goes with the FAA. I see things happen all the time that don't get investigated...let alone even make the local news.
