Helicopter in Hudson River crash not initially visible on radar, federal officials say

HOBOKEN — Federal safety officials investigating a midair collision over the Hudson River changed their account of the accident on a key point today, saying an air tour helicopter struck by a small plane wasn’t initially visible on radar to an air traffic controller handling the plane.

The National Transportation Safety Board had previously said the controller failed to warn the plane’s pilot of the potential for a collision with several aircraft in its path, including the helicopter, before handing off responsibility for the plane to another airport.
