Hudson River miracle plane preps for final journeyPosted: Updated:
After spending two-and-a-half years in a hangar in Harrison, the banged-up US Airways plane that made a miraculous landing on the Hudson River is getting ready for its final journey.
The Airbus A320's final destination will be the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, N.C.
Today, the plane was lifted onto a specially built rig. It's scheduled to make the 650-mile journey to Charlotte later this week.
The plane suffered extensive damage when it landed on the Hudson River after a flock of geese caused an engine failure in 2009. Hudson 'Miracle' pilots reunite for NY flight'Miracle on the Hudson' passenger visits NJPilot, crew of Flight 1549 get keys to New York City
