Today, I was taxiing out to the active aboard United 144 to PVD (by the way). We got the active runway and sat for maybe 30 minutes. Then the pilot came over the intercom and said that a plane was coming in with an emergency.

It was around 5:15pm CST on May 6, 2000. The aircraft looked to be either a 757, 767, or 777. I couldn't make it out. He was having a tough time in final though. He was bouncing all over the place. It was a UAL jet, I believe.

Does anyone know what happened or what flight it was?

Perhaps UAL_Bagsmasher, you know?

How do you mistake a 757 for a 777? This must have been a ways away, so it's curious that at the same time you could see him having trouble landing, but that aside I've heard nothing about it. Maybe one of the 3000+ registered users here was on that flight...

I don't know what happened, but I did see your flight got in quite late to PVD due to "Operations."

That’s interesting, sometime ago while at ORD taxing in line to the takeoff runway, we rolled past a Virgin Atlantic B747-200 or 300 (it didn’t have winglets- can’t remember which model) that had just landed and was surrounded by a convoy of police & fire vehicles. Nothing was ever reported in the media, nor could I find anything on the Internet?

Guess if it wasn’t important they wouldn’t have reported it.

I'm curious, what are the criteria for listing incidents on the NTSB website? I thought it was to cover anything and everything, no matter how minor.

Should be -Guess if it was important they would have reported it.

Seems my spelling has gone downhill lately ; )

The reason why I couldn't make out the aircraft make was because I was on the right side of the 757 in the aisle seat. The stricken airliner was coming in on the left side of the aircraft. I had to peer over three people and then crain my neck over them to see.

When the aircraft came down it hit hard. You could see the smoke coming from his landing gear and the wings flap from impact.

Still no one knows? I just want to know how they did. I'd be pretty shaken up myself.

A question comes to mind. If a pilot is involved in a 'routine' emergency is he/she allowed to take the rest of the day off?
