On January 15, 2009, Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger miraculously landed US Airways Flight 1549 on the surface of the Hudson River after a collision with a flock of geese left the plane unflyable. Unbelievably, the skid landing resulted in zero fatalities, thanks to the flight skill and experience of 57-year-old Captain Sully. With the power of Twitter at our fingertips, we were able to witness the thrilling rescue as coast guard officials closed in on the crashed jet. It’s a day that will live on in air travel history forever.
Now, nearly two years after the Miracle on the Hudson became a piece of history, Ohio-based LEGO fanatic Ken Osbon created this LEGO brick recreation of Sully’s finest moment. The Miracle on the Hudson LEGO scene will be on display at the BrickExpo 2010 the weekend of September 11-12 in Cincinnati.
