The Hudson River landing of flight US Airways 1549 in 2009 was caused by a bird strike that caused both engines to fail. To prevent such incidents, measures can include airport wildlife management programs, bird strike detection systems, and the development of more bird-resistant engine designs. Additionally, increased pilot training for emergency situations would help ensure the safety of passengers in the event of a similar incident.

Yes there was. I believe she had navigators on board with her.
Only one person could fit on the first plane. The engine was not much better than a lawn mower engine (but much heavier). I have added some photos for you to see the plane on the link below.
Her first aircraft was a British Gypsy Moth biplane.
