Sullenberger during flight 1549 when it ditched in the Hudson River, New York, with no loss of life following a bird strike on 15th January 2009. The hull of N106US now lies in a special museum in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event became known as the 'Miracle on the Hudson'.

Unlike other shops we transport this model from the factory in China to our warehouse without using air freight. We love airplanes as much as you do, but air freight does have a huge negative environmental impact. In addition to this, air freight from China to Europe through Russian airspace generates revenue for the Russian regime. For obvious reasons we want to prevent this. Lastly, air freight is expensive so by using other means of transport we can offer models for a lower price.
The only advantage of air freight is that it's very fast. But we don't think this is more important than all disadvantages. If you reserve a model in advance you will be sure you can buy it from us. At a lower price, with less environmental impact and without indirectly supporting the Russian regime.
