ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators have modified their preliminary report on the midair collision of a small fixed-wing aircraft and a sightseeing helicopter over the Hudson River on August 2009. The NTSB previously said the controller failed to warn the plane's pilot of the potential for a collision with several aircraft in its flight path and now they are saying that the air tour helicopter wasn't initially visible on radar.
