Well I am guessing standard flat nose low & first to hit the asphalt for the tire blow out, and the flap failure is just part of flying the CRJayyyyyyy.

Tyre? I know it's a Canadian built plane but last I knew they still spelled it tire like us. Or at least the Canadian company that goes by the name Canadian Tire spells it tire.....

I saw the no-flap landing at GJT two days ago. Great job by the Mesa crew. This is not something I would enjoy doing-

I bought 15,000 shares at .042. I think I'll wait for the Delta lawsuit. If they win it could get a pretty good bump. What do you think Andy?

No flap landings at Mesa happen on a daily basis. Hardly newsworthy......unless you just want to make a case that it happened in grand jct.
