Jetblue flight 292

Anybody know who the crew is? I have a couple of buddies that work there.

BUR-JFK, diverted to LGB. Gear looks down but the nosewheel landing gear looks cocked off to the side.


Hope it all turns out ok for everyone.

Turn on Fox News!

JBU Airbus is circling LAX, trying to make an emergency landing because of a damaged gear. Live on Fox News.

Live on Fox. Reports a jammed nose gear and upcoming attempt to land at Burbank.

Damn Dish network...they put FOX News on the most expensive package, so I didn't get it.

It's a vast left-wing conspiracy.

I know it is. CNN, CNN Headline News, and MSNBC are all on the cheapo package.

Why BUR? Pretty short runway
I thought the same thing. Why not LAX? Remember though, this is a TV reporter we're watching.

True. I'll give the crew the benefit and say their destination was BUR, but they'll put it down at LAX

I would assume they'd go to LGB. The equipment is already standing by.

The same exact thing happened several years back at Phoenix with an America West Airbus. The nose gear did not collapse, it's a really strong gear strut, just all the tire rubber tore off. Hopefully this will end the same way.

I wouldn't stay and clean the cabin after this $hit.

They just showed a close-up of the nose wheel. It's cocked about 80 degrees to the left.
