(WHAS 11)--Can you believe it was five years ago that we were talking about the Miracle on the Hudson?

US Airways flight 1549 flew into a flock of geese, damaging both engines.

The flight's crew, led by captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, safely landed in the frigid Hudson River.

All 155 passengers and crew survived.

Sullenberger retired a short time later and is now an author and aviation consultant.

The plane itself is on permanent display at a museum in Charlotte.

Sully and some of the passengers will be joining ferry crew members who rescued them to mark the anniversary Jan. 15.
