'Miracle on the Hudson' Airliner Gets Stuck on Way to Museum

1549 move

June 9, 2011 — The main fuselage of the Airbus A320 that landed in the Hudson River in January 2009 got stuck while trying to make a sharp turn on the main street in Moorestown, New Jersey, while being transported to a museum in North Carolina. Town officials had to lower traffic lights and uproot a fence before the caravan could continue.

In 2009, US Air Flight 1549, piloted by Young Eagles Co-Chairmen Sully Sullenberger and Jeff Skiles, hit the geese minutes after takeoff from New York’s LaGuardia Airport and had to land in the river after both its engines failed. The aircraft has been in pieces in Harrison, New Jersey, for two years, but now the plane’s parts are headed to the Carolinas Aviation Museum at the Charlotte/Douglas International Airport, where it will eventually be reassembled and put on display.  Follow its progress from New Jersey to North Carolina Live!
