CHARLOTTE, N.C. (The Blaze/AP) –  Nearly 2 1/2 years after a US Airways jet made a miraculous landing on the Hudson River, passengers and crew will reunite in the North Carolina city where the aircraft was bound that wintry day. Watch a recap of what happened and interviews with the passengers below:

The damaged aircraft has spent the last two years in a Newark, N.J. hangar.

The plane on June 6 will begin a five-day journey in a special trailer to the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte for display. A June 11 reception there will honor passengers and crew.

Charlotte was the destination of US Airways Flight 1549 until a flock of geese disabled the engines on Jan. 15, 2009. Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III glided it to a safe landing on the Hudson outside New York City. All 155 passengers and crew members were rescued.
