New York City and state police said the divers confirmed Wednesday afternoon that an object detected by sonar near the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum is the missing engine.

The airliner s other engine remained attached to the right wing of the plane.

The Airbus A320 crash-landed in the Hudson on Thursday after hitting birds and losing thrust from both engines. All 155 people on board survived.

The rest of the plane has been taken to a New Jersey marina to be studied by investigators
