It seems like it would be safer to land wheels up in a CRJ than lets say a 737 because there is no engine to break off

Looks like N857AS from what i can see. It looks as if the crew did a wonderful job landing the a/c. I have seen pictures and looks like minimal damage (as little as possible given the situation)

Yeah I was headed home and I saw that incident and was glad to here all was okay. They didnt even use the slides, because its so so low to ground. All in all good job to everyone. Airport staff did a great job as well.  Smile

Does a CRJ have slides?



This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

No, CRJs are not equipped with evacuation slides.

Good thing it wasn't an A330, or certain people on a.net would ask for a grounding of the complete fleet.

Any other type of plane seems to get away with a lot more right now.

My best fried was the First Officer in the aircraft. After he gets some rest I will make sure to add as much details of the incident as possible. Here is a link to more video from after the landing.

The forward 1L door has airstairs and the other exits aren't more than six feet from the ground so there is no need from slides.

I love how the guy is like "Join us tonight to find out what went wrong..." I personally think a lot went right since everyone walked away from this uninjured.
 Yeah sure

But they can't sell good news. no one will watch it. So they have to say bad news to get people to tune in.

That is why I can't stand the media now a days.

So 6 feet to the tarmac is OK without a slide or some other emergency exit device? Try jumping from a six foot height on to hard concrete and see what happens. It is a very good way to break an ankle--even for young, healthy, and fit individuals.

Are they going to point out how a lot of stuff keeps happening with ASA planes? Are the ASA planes old for CRJs?

Our company had FAs sit and jump out of the 6 foot high galley door until someone broke their leg. Now during training you only get to slide off the wing.

The main cabin door (1L) swings down and has stairs, so passengers can simply go down the stairs. The overwing exits drop down only about 1 or 2 feet onto the wings. From there, passengers can simply slide down from the wing to the ground (only about 4 feet).

Does anyone have any idea what might have happened? Maybe a Chock left somewhere in the wheel well? I don't know too much about a CRJ and how the gear operates on it.

Thank you, I did not realize or think of how many reporters and Company reps are on the forums.
I will say that they were proud of the job that they did as I am of a close friend.

The RJ's have down-lock pins on the main gear for towing, but if one had been left in, the gear would not have retracted in the first place...
