Miracle On The Hudson plane US1549 Arrives Charlotte, NC

‘Like going to your own funeral – but not having to,’ Flight 1549 passenger says

Despite clipped wings, scratched paint and a jagged rip in its underbelly, the Airbus 320 that became world-famous as the “Miracle on the Hudson” was reunited Saturday with its last occupants.

It not only passed inspection, but was remembered fondly — well, as fondly as the container for a near-death experience can be — by those who were aboard on Jan. 15, 2009, as Charlotte-bound Flight 1549 rose into a flock of geese and turned from one of the most sophisticated flying machines on the planet into an 80-ton glider.

“When there’s an impact like this, it crystalizes everything,” said Pam Seagle, who was in seat 12A and attended Saturday night’s reception at Carolinas Aviation Museum to welcome the plane, which will officially go on display on the third anniversary of the splashdown.
