New time lapse video [04:48] of the salvage of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 (aka 'Miracle on the Hudson'). The A320 is up for sale. It was put "on the online auction block by the insurance company Chartis...The sale attracted widespread attention within hours on Friday, and Chartis was apparently so inundated by curiosity or online bids that it removed the information from its Web site. Chartis identified the plane only by its registration number and its family name, A320, and yet it was instantly recognizable."
"'Due to the volume of interest in aircraft N106US we will provide additional and necessary information in the near future so that all interested parties can be accommodated,' a statement read on the page listing items for auction. 'Thank you for your interest in the aircraft.'"Previously on MeFi.
