Birds took the blame for bringing down the jetliner that "Sully" Sullenberger landed on the Hudson River near New York eight years ago. They have been paying for it with their lives ever since. An Associated Press analysis of bird-killing programmes at the New York City area's three major airports found that nearly 70,000 gulls, starling, geese and other birds have been slaughtered, mostly by shooting and trapping, since the 2009 accident, and it is not clear if those killings have made the skies safer.
