Description:The Carolinas Aviation Museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate housed in a former Wachovia Bank hanger, is home to the Miracle on the Hudson exhibit. The Flight 1549 Airbus, landed in the Hudson by Captain Sully is on permanent display, along with a full exhibit detailing the crash. Their collection of aircraft, helicopters, equipment, gadgets and printed material cover years of aviation history. Museum guests can sit in the pilot's seat of an F4 Phantom.

Ask the docents about various aircraft on display and the role each has played in shaping our history.

This is a fun place to go, mostly for younger children. My boys were 5, 7, and 13. The two youngest loved it, the oldest thought it was good. You get to see a lot of planes up close and personal. You also get to get inside some of the old planes and the kids can pretend that they are flying. While this is a fun trip, it is a good once every couple of years field trip; not one you would want to do frequently.
