It landed safely...but somehow a person broke their legs.

Sounds very similar to a quote from the US crash in the Hudson...

Yeah, it is bull. I saw the live footage of the aircraft on the ground. It was not being evacuated, just being followed by fire and ems. The media really loves to throw in broken legs into every situation lately. Must be a mafia thing....

I think the article was referring to the US Airways accident. It was a poorly written blurb, and I had to do a double take.

155 people in a 737-700 would be a bit interesting ...

You can come close (154?) w/an all economy layout, but FL doesn't run that.

(Yes, it's obviously someone mixing up a quote from the US splashdown)

The nose gear didn't fail.

Jet lands safely in Baltimore after emergency call


LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — A commercial passenger jet that had reported a possible nosegear problem touched down safely Friday at Baltimore's airport.

AirTran Airways Flight 149 returned to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport at about 12:07, then taxied to a gate, according to airport spokespeople.

AirTran spokesman Tad Hutcheson said the Boeing 737 took off from BWI at 11:08 a.m. with five crew members and 133 passengers, including two infants.

Hutcheson said the flight crew reported seeing an indicator that the nosegear did not retract after take off. The plane did a low fly-by of the airport tower and officials could see that the gear was up, Hutcheson said.

The captain did not declare an in-flight emergency but returned to BWI for maintenance.

"He handled it by the book," Hutcheson said.

Fire and rescue teams responded to the airfield and waited for the circling jet to land.

Mechanics were inspecting the plane to determine if the indicator light was faulty or if there was really a nosegear problem.

The plane was taken out of service, Hutcheson said.

According to Hutcheson, the plane was making its first flight following a maintenance check Thursday night at the airport.

...guys, read the whole thing!!! Last sentence is about US A320!

The safe landing occurred one day after a US Airways plane landed in the Hudson River. The 155 people on board were OK, with the exception of one person who suffered two broken legs.

I like how "they" (the media) also state, "He handled it by the book." I would like to think that all pilots handle it by the book. Some may be sloppy out there but, it is a given that the p.i.c. would do a propper job. shesh.
