Looked like an United Express E170 just landed on 19L with no nose gear deployed. Lots of sparks as the nose scraped along the runway. Hope everyone is OK. Anyone have more info?


We got planes! We got gates! What the hell!

I'd like to hear about this one. Anyone have a news article or anything? That's a pretty big deal for a new plane.

It's all over the news now (MSNBC, CNN, etc.). No injuries, fortunately. They evacuated using the slides.

Local Fox 5 News reports that it was United Express Flight 7512. Three people reportedly sent to hospital but all ok.

Happened at IAD Washington Dulles. Haven't seen it on CNN but it's on the local channels here in DC.

A few minor injuries actually. All things considered, It was an excellent landing, watching it Live was interesting. It's still on RWY 19L, getting ready to move now. It was shuttle america, not UA as some have reported

What is up with the 170 lately? Lots of tires blown. Glad everyone is okay!

Is the plane too heavy for the tires or something?

Had nothing to do with tires, the nose gear did not deploy

United Express has been having one of those days. They had a CRJ go off the runway in WI today. Luckily no injuries.

Technically these instances were two different airlines (SkyWest, Shuttle America) but that probably wasn't what you were saying. But does anyone else notice how things like this seem to happen close together? I know two NW aircraft had incidents within a week or two in August. Just coincidences of course.

Yes. It is kind of freaky actually. Seems like disasters happen in three's lately too.

Right, right. Unfortunately, for United, the stories (locally) have the //// with the story. Typically, these things (like others) happen in threes. I don't much care for anticipation of anything.

Yes, as a firefighter, that is a commonly held superstition amongst us. If we have had 2 calls during a shift, we know not to go to bed, because at some point...a 3rd one WILL be coming...probably when in the bathroom or in the middle of dinner...

Here are a couple links about the story. Plane apparently took off from DCA headed to DFW and blew a tire on takeoff, and made the emergency landing at IAD.

Interesting side note. 15minutes prior to this landing. NWA CRJ made an emergency landing on the same runway. Deplaned on the taxiway and had to be towed to the gate....

Nice shot Skydogs, thanks for sharing with us.

I have a question. If this incident was to occur to an B787 what degree of damage would one expect to a composite fuselage from such a landing?

Every crash/incident is different. This turned out good but who is to say the next one is not going to break apart and crash into a million pieces.

38 Midway2airtran : Blew a tire?? Must be the media's knowlege? Apparently it looks like the nosegear failed to retract, according to the pictures above. Glad all onboard
39 Loggat : Apparently, I'd say that the nosegear DID retract, but would not extend. The tires on the E170 are made by Dunlop and are not common to any other air
