A First For Downtown New York Traffic, An Airplane

New York City traffic is famous, but here is something I bet they thought would never be in the mix, an Airbus airplane.

After its miraculous crash landing on the Hudson River last month, the strange journey of US Airways flight 1549 continues. On Saturday the wreckage of the Airbus A320 was plucked from a barge at a marina in Jersey City, placed on a trailer, and driven through the streets of New Jersey to a salvage yard.

New Jersey's Hudson Reporter says "the plane wreckage including the wings and the horizontal and vertical stabilizers were transported by flatbed truck to Supor Industries, a salvage facility, in Harrison where they will be stored for up to 18 months."
