Can anyone shed any light on the NJ bird that crashed in Telluride sheering off the nose gear?

It is currently an open case. We have been given no info from NetJets or NJASAP other than there was an incident and no one was seriously hurt.

NJ put a clamp on all information

I was in Telluride this week an the line guys up there said when it happened, NJ had it pulled into a hangar and has put a clamp on all information about the accident.

What happened?

Is the jet still in the hangar at Telluride?

No body hurt

Line guys said no one was hurt. But right after it happened there seemed to be a serious effort to put a lid on the accident and not let any information out

They always put a lid on every incident.....


I "think" it was an encore......by the tail number anyway.

News black out

Don't know why on this one but NJ management and the union have gone to great lengths to keep a lid on it. I called a bud at NJ and he knew nothing about it.

enough
They aren't "keeping a lid on it" any more than would usually apply while it's being investigated. No pax involved and no one hurt but there is the crew to think about.

You're an idiot! You obviously work for one of the failing competitors of Netjets to publish such crap. A nose gear collapse is not a crash.

That is standard while any incident is under investigation. Not sure why you expected any differently.

R-E-L-A-X!!!! I'm sick of people getting their manties in a bunch anytime somebody says something that isn't positive about NJ. He wasn't even implying negativity, more of an inquiry.

They've not been successful at keeping the lid on very tight.

Telluride

Heres a pic of the encore..... you can bet the crew did everything possible before the incident.

http://www.telluridenews.com/news/x392058789/Jet-has-rough-landing-into-Telluride

Note TRs are still out, which means they saw it coming but couldnt stop and kept them out.


I flew with one of our FOs last week and they had a brake lock up and the plane turned 90 degrees to the runway before it got stopped....

******************** happens .... deal with it.

Glad no one was hurt.

I am curious as to why the T/R's being out means they knew it was coming.

Not picking a fight, just curious of the logic in that statement. If I made a normal landing and my nose gear suddenly collapsed, my T/R's would be out too.

If at some point the hydraulics were compromised, he might not have had pressure to close them.

Can you bring the throttles over the cut off gate with the T/R's deployed?

Although you have to admit, its kinda sad when the media calls it a "rough landing" and someone on a pilot board calls it a "crash".

Shouldnt those positions be reversed?

Ck list calls for them to be idle at 60 kts and stowed at 40kts

That could be a true statement with the nose gear ripped off, hydraulics could bleed out of that area. But the nose gear would only be gone a very short while before stopping. Unless it came off on initial touchdown, and then it would be somewhat longer and I would think there would be enough reserve fluid to stow them...if they wanted to. But not being a crappy cessna type engineer, dont know. You may be on to something here.

Of course the crew, in all the excitement might of forgot to stow them.... Its pretty exciting to have a nose gear come out from under you...

Normally, the TRs are held in by being overcenter and extended by hyd pressure

Yes...
