Glad everybody is OK.

Wonder if they knew they had a problem with the gear ahead of time, or a "surprise" gotcha on touchdown?

If the rumors I heard are correct; indeed the pilots did a good job. Incidents like this really bring home the point of the seriousness of the job and the talent the profession maintains, despite the lackluster wages, earning potential and job security. Perhaps a loyalty to this vocation akin to that of a teacher; Kudos to all involved.

They landed on 27R in ATL which is the longest runway we have and usually only used for departures. So im guessing they knew they had a problem

By the flight track looks as though they knew about it, Lt MLG problem, before hand and did an excellent job of dealing w/ it. Looks also like it was one the airframes from OH.

Do we get credit for an A-14 and Completion Factor, or do we actually have to make it to the gate for that?

I was sitting between 27L and 27R waiting to leave when they were on their 1st approach to ATL on 27L. Told tower they needed to go around for a gear disagree. I took off before he came in and didn't hear about the outcome until a couple hours ago. Job well done!

time?
ASA does get credit for completing the flight, A14 not too sure about. They did indeed know that it was a problem before touchdown. A call was sent out by company to "go team" members after the first attempt at landing, this was while the aircraft was still circling or being vectored to approach.
Job well done. The big question is what would Sully have done?
