HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) – The US Airways jetliner that landed safely on the Hudson River in 2009 is rolling across Maryland.
The State Highway Administration says the 120-foot fuselage of the plane captained by Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger left Perryville shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday on a route that will take it through western Maryland.
The plane’s final destination is the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, N.C. The wings were shipped separately.
The SHA says motorists should expect delays as the slow-moving truck creates a rolling roadblock along Interstate 95, the Baltimore Beltway and Interstates 70 and 68.
The agency says the truck carrying the plane will go no faster than 50 mph and require two travel lanes.
