Just saw on the news that a WN flight made an emergency landing at LAX this morning (2/28). I didn't catch the flight number (#2685, I think), but it was a -300. They didn't indicate where the flight originated or where it was heading. Evidently, the pilot reported some sort of hydraulic failure.

Anyone have any additional information as to what exactly happened, flight number, and O/D...

Glad to see it landed safely. Nice work on behalf of the crew.

A lot of things fall under the category of Hydraulic Failure. Emergency procedures are often needed, but without any more info, it is hard to get an idea of if it was serious or not. The passengers wouldn't even notice something as major as losing a complete hydraulic system unless they were timing how long it takes to open the thrust reversers or something like that.

If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Flight was 2365, LAX-MCI.

Flight appears to be rescheduled with a 73G now.
