“Flight 1549: Miracle on the Hudson” exhibition now open

“…we have had a Miracle on the Hudson.” Governor David Patterson

“Flight 1549: Miracle on the Hudson” retraces the path of US Airways Flight 1549 from its departure from La Guardia International Airport to the emergency landing and evacuation on the Hudson River. This 50 linear foot panel exhibition takes visitors through the quick thinking and determined action of the flight crewmembers was well as the rapid response of the crews of nearby ferryboats and New York City’s first responders who together averted a potential disaster.

“Flight 1549: Miracle on the Hudson” is an abridged version of an exhibition of the same title at the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, NC where the original Airbus A320 aircraft of Flight 1549 is also on exhibit. The CR Smith Museum gratefully acknowledges the support of the Carolina’s Aviation Museum and Freeman Ryan Design (Surry Hills, Australia) in granting us permission to re-use the original exhibitions’ text and design.
