Carolinas Aviation Museum 'Home Of Miracle On The Hudson'

A few weekends ago, we had a day out at the Carolinas Aviation Museum. It just so happens the museum is a permanent home for the airplane from Miracle on The Hudson, also known as Flight 1549.

The flight was on it's way to Charlotte, North Carolina so many of the passengers were local and often come to the museum to talk about their experiences.

Afterwards, we were guided outside onto the air field where we could view a few more airplanes, as well as watch flights taking off, and landing at the Charlotte airport.

To most people going to see airplanes isn't all too exciting, but it reminds me of my dad. He was in the Rhodesian Air Force from the late 1970's, to the early 1980's and went on to carve our a career in avionics (electrical engineering) in aircraft. He was partner, and president of his own company for nearly twenty-five years from 1989 until he passed away in 2013. So I spent much of my childhood in airplane hangers, and airplanes.

Are you a plane person? Excuse the pun!

Kiki this was a great post! I've been dying to see the movie and to see the plane in person would be fabulously exciting!
