I was holding for a gate when ground rolled the trucks to 4L just before noon. Eagle did a low pass and the truck reported the left main looked like it wasn't quite fully extended. We parked soon thereafter and didn't find out any further info...just wondering if everything turned out OK?

I shot some video with my camera during the pass and from what I could see, the left main did look a bit canted inward as if it wasn't quite locked.

If you're the crew involved and want a memento, PM me and I'll email you the QT movie.

Hey that's progress, last year an AE ERJ did a touch and go in BOS with the gear up! It seems the ERJ gear system is getting a bit more reliable, hey 2 outta 3 aint bad right?

I heard it over liveatc.net - crew did another low approach and JFK Tower had a couple of crews report what they saw - all said it looked normal.

A/C landed without incident.
