The US Airways plane that landed safely in the Hudson River in 2009 traveled through Delaware and into Maryland on its way to a North Carolina museum.

The 120-foot fuselage of the plane set off from Harrison, N.J., on Saturday and is expected to cross the Delaware Memorial Bridge around 10 a.m. Monday. The wings were shipped separately to the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, N.C.

Museum President Shawn Dorsch says tens of thousands of people have been lining the route through New Jersey. He says the plane has been traveling on back roads to avoid overpasses, but once they get to Delaware it will travel on bigger roads. Once the plane reaches the Baltimore area it will head west on Interstates 70 and 68 into West Virginia.
