Carolinas Aviation Museum
The wings of U.S. Airways flight 1549 had been cut off to transport the aircraft to the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte where the plane is now on display.
The wings of the US airways jet piloted safely into the Hudson River by Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger are heading south.
The plane that Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III famously landed in the Hudson River will arrive Friday in Charlotte at the Carolinas Aviation Museum.
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 that landed safely on the Hudson River more than two years ago is about to begin the slow journey to its final destination.
The US Airways jet known for its famed “Miracle on the Hudson” landing, has spent the last two years just outside Newark, but it will soon be moving to a permanent display at a Charlotte, N.C. museum.
The plane whose splash landing was called “The Miracle on the Hudson” is set for its final destination: a North Carolina aviation museum.
Two years ago, US Airways Flight 1549 made an emergency landing in the Hudson River. On Saturday, some of the survivors took time to remember that fateful day.
The US Airways jet that made a near-miraculous landing on the Hudson River in 2009 will finally reach its destination, but as a museum piece rather than in service.
