The US Airways jet has been housed in a warehouse in northern New Jersey since its splash-landing that was dubbed "The Miracle on the Hudson."
It's scheduled to leave on a giant flatbed truck Saturday morning for the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, N.C., where it will be on display. The journey will take almost a week.
The plane was bound for Charlotte from New York on Jan. 15, 2009, when it struck a flock of geese and lost engine power.
All 155 people aboard survived after Capt. Chesley Sullenberger elected to ditch the plane in the frigid Hudson.
