Glad everyone made it without injury.

I do wonder about the fuel dumping though?

That story is hilarious!

Quote:
The warning that a plane was in distress came in at 8:44 p.m., said Christine Osborn, a spokeswoman for Tampa International Airport. An alert that it was in danger of crashing came in at 9:08 p.m.

Talk about exaggerating!  rotfl 

After the incident last night, planes landed with a 5 knot tailwind. The smoke made for poor visibility, so everyone landed on 18L with the wind 310 at 5 knots. I'd assume this was because it was the only open runway that had an ILS.

So that's what, 2 nose gear failures for Gulfstream in a years time, both at TPA if I remember right. Ah dumping fuel from the good ole 1900D, I wonder if the FO had to climb onto the wing, pull open the fuel cap and siphon out the fuel himself.  Wink

Well when you're making any type of gear malfunction landing, you never know how it will turn out until you're on the ground with the engines shut down. If the captain can't control the airplane, he is going to run it off the runway and possibly crash. The call at 9:08pm was probably the time at which the crew gave up trying to lower the gear electrically or manually and made the call for C.F.R to be rolled out for their emergency landing.

So they do it at TPA also? We get this from them down here at FLL...and they always take out the long runway when they do....no one get's hurt....runway is blocked for about 3 hours (authorities getting good at it)....and all the carriers with long haul flights either sit and steam or depart light on fuel and flagstop enroute using the far shorter diagonal. Course it's really fun if you are already fueled and there is one...repeat one...tanker for defueling on the field....(yes you are number 7 for the truck....)

The FO is dumb enough to pay Gulfstream to work for them. He's probably dumb enough to be talked into trying it.

is it me, or does Gulfstream have a nasty habit of this happening in TPA?! this isn't the first time a 3M Be 1900 has landed without one of the landing gears in TPA.

Although that is the normal way of GA hiring people, they do also hire "outsiders" like any other airline.
