Nose gear problem. Burning off fuel.

Somehting’s wrong with the nose gear door. The gear itself is down and looks okay, but who knows if it’s locked or not…Scheduled as a PBI-ORD flight…one long flight to Miami for the passengers.


#3

…Of course, that’s entirely dependent on CNN having shown pictures of the correct MD-82. (Earlier, they watched intently as a 738 landed before the pilot they were speaking to clarified that this was not the plane in question…duh!)

Somebody just lost their job!


#5

not a good day for AA another flight 1613 has or is returning to ord.


#6

Pilot need not apologize for not keeping it lined up on the runway centerline. A beautiful landing!
