Outside the city, the “Miracle on the Hudson” is associated with the Hudson River in New York City. But Charlotteans know better. We had friends, family members, and coworkers who climbed out of the waterlogged vessel when it fell from the sky. Now we can claim that plane as a permanent exhibit at this museum of aviation history.
