Sorry if this was posted already. If it was then we can delete it.

I just heard about it. Must have been a bumpy landing.

I've been on some ruff landings on a CRJ and that has never happened.

Knowing what the panel looks like up close from working the ramp, that panel was in serious need of repair before the landing or some idiot didn't latch the panel in place correctly. I can attest to the fact that panel is usually pretty snug in place because my head was the one that usually had to give when I decided to stand up when I really shouldn't have.  Silly

Like I mentioned, that had to be one rough landing dudes for that to happen.

Can we say, "forgot to flare!"

No injuries were reported after an engine casing fell off of a Delta Connections plane as it was landing at Blue Grass Airport Tuesday morning.

Delta Connections? Is that a new subsidiary I wasn't aware of?  Yeah sure

Poor LEX - CRJ incidents seem to go hand-in-hand with LEX.

Leave it up to the press.

Don't know what it is with CRJ's and Lexington. Maybe we're jinxed.  Yeah sure

I was thinking the same thing. Those LEX folks are still probably trying to get over the last incident let alone have to deal with stuff like this.

OK, so watched the video and this isn't a OH bird it's a EV bird.

The title should be changed.

That's cuz to save money they used solid rubber tires and built the suspension out of used bungee cords held in place with duct tape. I saw that on the Red Green show.  Wink



Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

If you are referring to the CRJ-100/200 then you have been unlucky. They have trailing link landing gear, which makes for softer landings more often than the 700 and 900 which don't have trailing link gear.

Two incidents do not make a trend.



It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

4180 is a flight number operated by ASA not Comair, please change the title.

The only way that cowling is EVER coming off is if it was damaged or if all the camlocks were not installed properly ( and it would have to be more than just 2 or 3 )
