NEW YORK (CNN) - Five years ago Wednesday, a U.S. Airways flight made an emergency landing that shocked the country.
After a bird strike disabled the plane, Captain "Sully" Sullenberger managed to safely land the plane on the Hudson River.
All 155 aboard survived and those survivors marked the anniversary Wednesday.
"Five years ago this afternoon, 155 people faced a sudden unexpected challenge. Many people came together, did their jobs exceedingly well. It was such a wonderful outcome," said Sullenberger.
Sullenberger retired in March 2010.
The aircraft from the Miracle on the Hudson is now on display at an aviation museum in Charlotte, NC.
