Yay! That plane deserves to be in a museum. Too bad it's not anywhere near where I live, I'd like to go see it!

There is nothing else better to do with it besides scrap it. Good choice, I wonder if they will attach most of the parts (wings, engines etc) that were removed?

Glad to see it go to a museum. However I would think displaying it at the Intrepid museum would make more sense.

Yes, it will be fully assembled and kept in it's current state. The museum president said it will be "like a time capsule".

Seriously NC? nothing against the place but it nearly came to rest in front of the Intrepid! They must be keeping the space open in hopes of a shuttle.. Hah.

Well, the museum is right next to one of the runways at CLT, which was the flight's intended destination, no?

I want to see it displayed in a giant pool of water just like the famous photos of it in the Hudson.

Now we are talking! Even make it into a ride where you can board, splash down, open the exits, walk out onto the wing and wait to be rescued! Kidding of course, though...I could be on to an amusement park ride? You think Universal Studios would go for it? lol

- I get that, though I worry about the planes already there exposed to the elements 247.

I worry about those planes as well, especially the Concorde (which should be at JFK). But in the case of this Airbus I'm not sure its a problem after spending a few days in the drink.

Very good to see and I hope Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger and Jeff the First Officer are honored as the pilots that saved everyone onboard from a more probable fate. Interestingly enough, I'm reading Sully's biography, "Highest Duty" right now - I would suggest it as a good read for anyone, involved in aviation or not.

I hope the ENTIRE crew is honored. including the flght attendants, which people seem to forget about. Great job landing, now who is going to open all the doors and conduct the evacuation?

Well the Carowinds Amusement Park is only about 15 minutes from CLT   - kidding aside, good to see that this piece of aviation history will be preserved and that the plane will find it's permanent home at it's intended destination. Should also be a huge boost to the Carolinas Aviation museum!

tidal water at that not quite as bad as the ocean but having seen the effects of aircraft flying over salt water I do hope they atleast give it a good bath

You can see pictures of the interior in the Survival Factors docket for the NTSB hearing
