Local news just reported LGA closed due to emergency landing. Anyone have more info?

Due to DISABLED A/C, the La Guardia Airport (LGA) was closed as of Mar 26 at 10:50 pm EST. The date/time when the airport is expected to reopen is not known.

Doesn't LGA have a curfew anyway?

I read on CNN's Headline News that it was an Air Tran aircraft which made an emergency landing because it was "emitting smoke" (whtevr that means). I'm still trying to get more details.

Technically, there is no curfew at LGA.


Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

CNN reported NO smoke in the cabin or cockpit. Just electrical problems. Pilots in control at all times.

Yyz717:

Technically, you are correct. However, due to noise ordinances in New York City and Queens County where the airport is, LGA does close at midnight.

Sounds like everything is pretty much okay, though. This kind of incident occurs all over the US all the time (perhaps once or twice a month, maybe more). It's the first evac of a 717 that I've heard of.

Also, the article makes the statement:

But the pilot managed to land the plane safely at La Guardia then opened the plane's emergency chutes.

Isn't it the responsibility of the FAs to open the chutes? Or can it be centrally controlled on the 717?



Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it in summer school.

THE VIA STRIKES AGAIN! TWA had this happen once when the 717's were new. Fortunately, it was VFR.TC

Was it a Dc-9? They emit smoke a lot! I wonder what they would do if they saw a 707?  Laugh out loud

Elwood: It could be that the pilot ordered the FAs to use the chutes, as opposed to airstairs or just going to the gate.

Anyone know what runway they landed on?

Or where the plane is now?

A related question about the LGA curfew. Does it apply to just departures, or to arrivals as well? What if a flight from, say, Dallas is running late and would arrive past midnight. Does it have to divert to JFK?

Arrivals to LGA are allowed after midnight. In fact, even a few departures are allowed for special flights like sports charters, which come and go after midnight.

And obviously, planes arriving late are allowed to still land at LGA.

The time restrcitions are mainly for noise, most of which caused by departures.

I was wondering what hanger it is in, if any.

Parked outside even, maybe?

that's a suprise. I wonder how many of the ex-THY DC-9's are left in service?

I'm a little surprised that they didn't send the plane to EWR. I would think that the longer runways at EWR would potentially be a help to the crew, and AirTran does have ops at EWR as well.

The a/c in question is actually already back in ATL. It was ferried in and will remain out of service until all repairs are complete.
