The US Airways plane that landed in New York City's Hudson River nearly two years ago will soon be on display for visitors at the Carolinas Aviation Museum. Officials at the museum said they are almost close to signing off on a deal with the insurance company that currently possesses the Airbus 320 jet. 

On January 15, 2009, a US Airways flight from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, North Carolina hit a flock of geese, causing the engines to malfunction. Thanks to the skills and calm nerves of Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the plane made a safe landing in the Hudson with all 155 passengers and crew members surviving the scary incident. 

If the two sides can come to an agreement, the plane will be transported from a New Jersey storage facility and could be on display as soon as this May.
