On January 15, 2009 US Airways flight 1549 took off from LaGuardia Airport in New York City headed to Charlotte, North Carolina. However, three minutes into the flight, a flock of geese flew into the path of the airliner resulting in massive damage to the engines. Captain Chesley”Sully” Sullenberger and pilot Jeff Skiles were forced to land the aircraft, an Airbus 320, in the Hudson River. The miracle was that all survived the water landing.
US Airways is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. A “family reunion” of sorts was held in the Charlotte City Chambers for the passengers and crew of the flight. Pat McCrory, then Mayor of Charlotte and future NC Governor, presented passengers and crew commemorative items.
