I make of this incident as a case of sensational journalism. Disaster narrowly avoided? really? Does this journalist have some type of future vision. Last time I checked, most planes that have had landing gear problems recently have landed successfully with no fatalities (commercial aircraft). Yes, we know the school has had an airplane disaster in its history, but this is really reaching for a story if you ask me!

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

Well...looks like it was probably a CRJ-100. While a belly landing isn't necessarily the easiest and safest thing in the world to do, I don't think there would have been a disaster of any kind. Yes, there's the danger of the plane flipping over or breaking up, but it sounds like (from what there is, anyway) the pilots had control of the aircraft, and thus would not have been coming in at an excessive/uncontrollable rate of speed.


On the occasion of United overtaking Frontier as my most-flown airline, I say...let's get friendly.

In a word, no. Disaster narrowly avoided? Hardly.

Here's a more detail article. What gets me is this very week, CRW opened it's runway extension and now has 6800 Ft. Does it make sense to divert to LEX for 200 more feet?

The runway at LEX doesn't sit next to a 200 ft drop.

Landing gear problems on a CRJ? Let me put on my surprised face.

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

Actually belly landings aren't that bad. Sure you may lose some antennas but if the fuel tanks don't get punctured you slide to a stop. There was a CO DC-9 that landed gear up at IAH back in the 90s. It slid off into the grass and came to a stop. Most of the passengers just thought that the plane settled "a little lower than usual" during the landing.

I think the article is just trying to stir up old memories. A gear up landing is not in the same league as a busted minimum during and instrument approach in low IFR conditions.

You could technically say they were both Controlled Flight Into Terrain.

If nothing else goes wrong, the plane will be repaired and put back into service.
