Quoting DFW13L (Reply 4): What airport is this going on? None of the messages so far mention where it is!
Only guess looking at www.fly.faa.gov would be FLL ("General Departure Delays: Due to DISABLED AIRCRAFT, traffic is experiencing Gate Hold and Taxi delays between 15 minutes and 29 minutes in length and decreasing.") but no idea... I flipped to CNN and they were talking about something completely different.

You still have to love just how inaccurite the media came be. The only thing I heard the reporter get right was her name. Crash landing..??(emergency landing) Jet airplane.....??(sorry dear, that's a turboporop) Maybe a problem with the nose..?? (Daaaa!!)

as was said earlier in the posts ia B1900, NOT a Continental Airlines plane but a CO Connection company. Continental Airlines is all Boeing jets, Jet Express is all Embraer jets.....How about not acting like the media posting incorrect or incomplete information.

I know it is not Continental mainline, but the flying public couldn't give a shit. All they see is CO colors on the plane and the name Continental is on it, so they see it as Continental. I am smart enough to know the difference, flying public does not.
Good things come to those who wait, better things come to those who go AFTER it!

Quoting GQfluffy (Reply 7): How in the heck could they land that thing with no nosegear without shutting down the engines?
Screw the engines, save your ass!
A landing gear issue isn't that big of a deal, unless you shutdown two good engines early and Vmc roll it into the runway when one engine holds on longer than it should.....
Me...I'd just try to make it as soft as possible and stay off the problem gear as long as possible, then bring it down to the runway, no need to shutdown the engines. They will probably need a teardown anyways....
Sorry, I had an instructor heart attack....
