    The plane whose safe landing on the Hudson River captivated the world has begun the trip to its final destination.

    On Saturday morning the US Airways jet rolled out of the northern New Jersey warehouse where it's been stored since January 2009.

    The Airbus A320 was accompanied by a phalanx of police cars and film crews as it crossed the Passaic River from Harrison into Newark before heading southwest.

    It's expected to take about a week to get to North Carolina, where it will be displayed at the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte.

    The plane was bound for Charlotte from New York on Jan. 15, 2009, when it struck a flock of geese and lost engine power.
