“Miracle on the Hudson” Plane Traveling to Charlotte

Journey stops in Md. for Monday

The US Airways jet famous for the "Miracle on the Hudson" is making its journey to its new North Carolina home.

The New York-to-Charlotte flight splash landed in the Hudson River in 2009 after the jet hit a flock of geese. Everyone was safely evacuated while on the water.

The 120-foot fuselage left Saturday from Harrison, N.J., and crossed the Delaware Memorial Bridge about 1 p.m. Monday.

J. Supor & Son Trucking & Rigging Company has been tasked with taking the plane to the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, N.C. On their website they offer a downloadable application for your smart phone so you can track the journey.

Before reaching Maryland, the truck had to carry the plane on back roads to avoid overpasses. According to a Twitter account tracking the journey, the team will restart the journey tomorrow and is expected to travel via Interstates 70 and 68 into West Virginia.
