Wednesday, December 27, 2011, the two wings of the plane know as "The Miracle on the Hudson were brought down to Charlotte from a warehouse in New York. They expect to put it back in place next month for the January 15 third anniversary of the plane landing in the Hudson.
The fuselage of the plane is on display at the Carolinas Aviation Museum.
Museum Director Shawn Dorsch said getting the wings is an important step because everyone remembers the iconic pictures of the passengers standing on those wings waiting to be rescued after the plane went down.
"A lot of the passengers will tell you that they care more about us having the wing then the main part of the airplane," Dorsch said.
Since the plane went on display at the museum last June attendance has skyrocketed, Dorsch said.
"Attendance went from about 15,000 to 50,000 people a year on an annual basis," said Dorsch. "
