Mar 8, 2009: US Airways Flight 1549...

You may have heard about US Airways Flight 1549 and how Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger set the plane down in the Hudson River,
saving the lives of 155 passengers and his crew.
If not, you've really got to get out more but for now, Google 'miracle on the Hudson'.

After everyone was safe, the plane was dragged over to the docks and lifted out of the water with cranes.
Now after every crash...make that unscheduled landing... of a commercial flight, the National Transportation Safety Board wants to examine
the plane to determine exactly what happened, if possible. These examinations/investigations can take months, or more, with the plane in a
secure location to prevent tampering, and souvenir hunters, from foiling their search for causes.
The NYC docks hardly fills the bill, plus the plane has to be moved eventually, so they settled on a spot in New Jersey.

But how in hell do you move an airplane on, not the wide boulevards of Manhattan, the small streets of the waterfront and residential neighborhoods?
Very carefully.



I'd guess the red circles near the nose are bird strikes.



It looks like a dawn move, with lots of police escorts.
You can see in the last picture they had to contend with tree branches too.

US Airways Flight 1549 continues it's journey over at Bits & Pieces.

I wonder if there's one of the moving crew sitting in the cockpit, pretending he's driving it.

May have heard???

Can you say, facetious?

Also, remember the internet is global.
There might be posters unaware of an American non-casuality plane downing.

SG, the United States of America is of the upmost importance to everyone in the world. Of course the whole world knows what is happening here.

Any damn fool can see why that plane crashed.


The wings have fallen off.
