The safety board also says that an engine surge experienced by the Airbus 320 on Jan. 13 - two days before the accident - was due to faulty temperature sensor. The sensor was replaced, and the engine was examined and found to be undamaged before being returned to service.
Flight 1549's pilot reported that both engines had failed after the airliner collided with birds moments after taking off from LaGuardia Airport. All 155 people aboard survived.
