"Miracle on Hudson" Plane to Be Auctioned

For sale: One severely water-damaged jet, hero not included.

The banged-up US Airways plane that Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger deftly landed on the Hudson River a year ago after a flock of geese disabled its engines is being auctioned off.

Insurance firm Chartis, which is holding the online auction, describes the Airbus A320, minus its two engines, as having severe water damage throughout the airframe and impact damage to its underside.

Bidding on the plane, being held on a lot in Kearny, New Jersey, continues until March 27.
