CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — The communications headsets that belonged to the captain of the Charlotte-bound “Miracle on the Hudson” and the air traffic controller who tried to help will be part of the Carolinas Aviation Museum.
The second set belongs to Patrick Harten, who was in Charlotte on Sunday for the third anniversary of the crash landing in the Hudson River. Fifty-two passengers from the flight came to the museum and took their old seats aboard the jetliner at 3:31 p.m., marking the moment Flight 1549 hit the frigid river.
Birds had hit both engines, causing the plane to lose power.
