2009: Miracle on the Hudson

Five years ago Wednesday a passenger plane got into trouble in the air over New York City.

On that day Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger became a national hero.

Sully’s A-319 airbus lost both its engines shorty after taking off from Laguardia airport.

Captain Sullenberger made the incredible decision to “splash land” his jet into a river, in an event later dubbed the miracle on the Hudson.

That evening Newswatch 16’s Jennifer Borrasso went to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport to get reaction from folks about to take to the sky themselves.
