Miracle on the Hudson

The Miracle on the Hudson was one of the most amazing acts of heroism in the history of the United States. On January 15, 2009, Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger landed United Air Ways Flight 1549 carrying 150 passengers and 5 crew, landed safely in the waters of the Hudson River after the plane struck a flock of Canadian Geese during its initial climb, and lost engine power.


The United States Aviation Authority enlisted the services of Ajaco Towing and Recovery to relocate the aircraft to its final destination amongst the Carolina Aviation Museum in North Carolina Aviation Museum, and it took 5 trucks and 7 days to complete the move.
