We all know what happened on January 15 2009. But just in case you didn’t know or forgot I’ll give you a recap.
On January 15th 2009 US Airways flight 1549 an Airbus A320 with 150 passengers onboard with a crew of 5 left La Guardia Airport in New York City bound for Charlotte North Carolina which would then continue onto Seattle Tacoma Airport in Washington. After takeoff the had a bird strike involving a flock of Canada Geese which got ingested into the engines causing them to fail during climb out of New York City. They could not return back to La Guardia leaving them with only one option, to land in the Hudson River. Captain Sullenberger then told the passengers to brace and with Sullenberger at the controls the impacted the water. After the water landing two NY Ferries arrived at the passengers rescue and on land there were 140 firefighters, police officers and paramedics we’re waiting in New York for the passengers to arrive. While counting the passengers and crew after the incident to make sure all were accounted for the good news was found out that at 150 passengers and all five crew had survived the accident. After the investigation the aircraft N106US was taken by road to Charlotte to the Carolinas Aviation Museum.
That is the recap of the heroic event that unfolded that day.
What my plan is is that we would fly in a group from La Guardia Airport to Charlotte in the US Airways A320.
