CHARLOTTE — The wings from the “Miracle on the Hudson” plane are joining the fuselage in Charlotte.

The left wing arrived just before 10:30 a.m. Thursday and the right wing followed it a few hours later. The wings will be re-attached to the body of the plane inside the Carolinas Aviation museum as part of a live exhibit.

The museum's president, Shawn Dorsch, said the wings may be even more exciting for many passengers than when the fuselage arrived in May.

"A lot of the passengers think that the wing is the most important part of the airplane, because that's what they stood on after they landed in the water and it saved their lives. It's really exciting to get these here, it means a lot to a lot of people," said

US Airways Flight 1549 will be completely assembled in time for the third anniversary of the miraculous landing in January.
