MOORESTOWN – The plane survived a crash on the Hudson, but it couldn’t survive a trip through New Jersey!
If you were driving in parts of South Jersey on Sunday afternoon, you may have seen a large airplane stuck in the road.
U.S. Airways Flight 1549, the plane that made a miracle landing on the Hudson River in 2009, was being transported to a museum in North Carolina, and while en route, the craft got stuck turning a corner in Moorestown, Burlington County.
The incident happened at about 2 p.m., taking crews about an hour to cut down poles and traffic signals to allow the rig to get through Main Street.
The craft began its journey on Saturday from a warehouse in New Jersey where it has been stored since Capt. Sullenberger made an emergency landing almost two years ago; crews and passengers were able to make it to safety due to the captain’s decision.
The plane is being transported to the Carolina’s Aviation Museum where it will be on display.
