For Sale: One Very Damaged Plane

I can't see why anyone would want to buy this, except maybe for the rock star sex you might get out of the deal.
You probably can't fly like Sully - but you can own his plane.

The damaged airliner that Capt. Chesley Sullenberger gracefully landed in the Hudson River a year ago is up for sale in an online auction.

Not surprisingly, the "as is" plane is in rough shape.

"Destroyed. Aircraft suffered severe bird strike event resulting in water emergency landing," says a description of the jet on the Web site of insurance firm Chartis.

"Severe water damage throughout airframe. Impact damage to underside of aircraft."
You can inspect the goods here.
