We all know what happened yesterday with jetblue Flt 292. The fact that B6 doesn't serve LAX and have no maintenance facilities there, what is the procedure of the handling of the aircraft, and how long will it take to get that aircraft back in service.
Thanks for the responses

For one, I think you are confusing B6 with WN in the title of your topic. Canyon Blue is recognized as the color in which the upper fuselage is painted on WN 737s in their current livery.

Canyon Blue is the name of the aircraft in the LAX incident. It would be fixed on site most likely by JB mechanics from LGB and maybe JFK. It shouldn't take long after the NTSB releases the aircraft. Most likley a couple of days.

There have been similar incidences before on other than Airbus aircraft as well.
If the wheels did not grind down to the axle and no structural damage occurred, then it would be a pretty quick fix.

By the way kudos to the crew

I stand corrected. Hadn't been aware of the fact that B6 had given the 'bus involved in the emergency landing a name that can lead to unintended(?) association with WN. Especially since WN is fairly often referred to in the a.net forums as "Canyon Blue" on account of the main color of their current livery.

Essentially it is a three step process to get the aircraft out of LAX

(1) After the NTSB completes their review of the aircraft, it is turned over to jetBlue.
(2) The aircraft will need to be made airworthy. For an incident like this we're probably talking a full repair, not a temporary one. jetBlue can either hit up an airline that does A320/A319 repair (I believe it is the same gear) at LAX, or fly people in with parts and tools to do the job.
(3) Once the aircraft is airworthy it will depart LAX for a jetBlue maintenance facility for further repair or inspection.

I am quite sure there are plenty of MX people with experience on A319/320's at LAX to do the inspections, initial and even final repairs. Perhaps UA, HP, NW for examples? Still how much time (weeks? a month?) will pass before this a/c is back in service?

No big deal. Thanks for the reply.
So its not for certain if B6 will fly parts and maintanance crew or outsource it to someone at LAX. Hope she flies sooner than later.
Does anyone think they 'll have some test landings and take offs with the aircraft to see if if the problem occurs again?

I'd imagine whatever flights they need to take to get the plane to the destination before it enters service again would serve as a test?

You'd be surprised at how quick a repair like this can go - but at the same time it could go dramatically the other way as well. Replacing the nosegear assembly as a whole is not a very big job, and can probably be done in a day or so. The big problem would be if the vibration from the gear did any structural or other damage in the nose.

Another issue could be FOD bouncing up and hitting the belly, making small holes and / or dents that are out of limits. That would be time consuming to repair as well.

Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if ship 536 left LAX within a week or two. Repair the nose gear, speed tape the belly, and ferry it to a B6 mx facility like MCO.

B6 MX personnel were on the scene as the plane stopped. You can see them in the videos, wearing the dark blue reflective vests.

The sad thing is, it probably took them as long to DRIVE from airport to airport, as it took that plane to FLY (albeit in circles) ...

Amazing job of airmanship, that's for sure. On the HDTV film shot from a local news helicopter, you can see the plane bouncing on the nosegear shocks when it finally comes to a stop.
