Fodor's Review

The star here is the "Miracle on the Hudson" plane—the famed Airbus A320-214 that was safely landed in the Hudson River in January 2009 by the pilot Capt. Chesley B. Sullenberger after both engines failed. A working DC-3, F-14D Super TomCat and about a dozen other aircraft are also on display. Note that if you're visiting in peak summer there's no air-conditioning here, although there are several large and powerful ceiling fans.
