Find Out How Hiperco 50 and "Sully" Saved Lives

How did Hiperco 50 save the day? Was it due to the magnetic field strength and high power/weight ratio of Hiperco 50? Would another soft magnetic alloy also have worked? Why was Hiperco 50 such a good material for the AUP (Auxiliary Power Unit) and the RAT (Ram Air Turbine) in Captain Sullenberger’s Airbus?

Find out how the strength to weight ratio of Hiperco 50 soft magnetic alloys was critical to the survival of US flight 1549

Why was Tungsten Alloy also a necessary material in the safe landing of US flight 1549? Where was that material employed within the aircraft?
