JetBlue LAX

  1. A Burbank to NYC JetBlue flight just made a safe landing at LAX, after its nosegear was somehow twisted at a 90 deegree angle. All passengers and crew are safe, no fire.

    Thank G-d

    I just watched the landing. What a wonderful job the crew did in getting that plane down safely. I can't imagine the emotions being experienced by everyone in that plane. Thank God, indeed, that they're all safe.

    We were in McDonald's eating dinner when it was happening. My chicken nuggets got chilly b/c I was watching that! I was almost in tears when it finally stopped.

    Just watched the landing on the news. WOW!! Crew did a great job bringing it in! Glad everyone is safe!! (let the investigations -- the Root Cause Analyses -- begin!! Hope it's a fluke problem, and nothing that endangers the other planes of that make).

    That was pretty awesome. I just wonder how many folks needed a change of clothes afterwards. I probably would!

    I told Leonard I would be a blubbering mess if I were on that plane. More so, b/c when I fly, I ask for emergency exit row (more leg room). No pressure there!

    Very awsome indeed. Nerve wrecking too as you watch and pray all goes well.

    Great job by the airline and LAX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :hatparty:

    It's nice to finally see a happy ending, one that does not end in a plane crash, deaths/injuries, and the compulsory finger pointing.

    If you noticed, that nose wheel stayed RIGHT ON the center line the whole time!!!!!!!!!!!! What a great job by the flight crew!!

    I heard that passengers onboard were seeing/listening to the reports while they were circling. How strange would that have been!!!

    I'm certainly happy that everyone is OK ...

    However ... I am a little frustrated with the news coverage. It seems as if it is being treated as being more important because it happened in LA. A similar incident happened with a military plane just about 2 months ago where I live (a much smaller city) and it didn't even make the national news. The plane circled for a long time to drain the fuel and then made a similar emergency landing -- all caught by the local TV stations, but ignored by the national ones. I guess our military personnel were just not considered as important as the people on the LA plane. That frustrates me.

    One good thing ... the pilot and copilot of the military plane did receive medals for their outstanding work ... and the local TV stations carried that, too. But again, the national news media didn't pick up on it.

    Now ... a bunch of civilians in LA ... that's newsworthy!
