Heard a rumor from a buddy of mine who was diverted to MSN that apparently an RJ in MKE had a gear issue and either landed gear up, or had one fold up on on the runway. Has anyone heard any info on it? It apparently happened an hour or so ago!
Well, its looks like we might have a winner, from CVG, it did a number of holding patterns around MKE before proceeding inbound, my guess they were unable to extend the gear, proceeded gear up! Gotta love Flightaware!
Edited: Or I could have just looked at the link, Thanks for the info!

Per the updated article from jsonline, I think it's flight OO 4443 from CVG. Glad the plane landed safely and the passengers are safe. Looks like the pilot made a few go-rounds - presumably to burn off fuel? Anyway, kudos to the crew for getting the plane down safely.
Official release from Skywest, though no new info at the moment. However, it seems as if they have cleared it off of the runway, as it appears the airport is now open. Hopefully daylight will bring about new info as to whether it was a gear collapse or not!

The airport is indeed open again, however all operations are being conducted on RWY 13! I have NEVER seen this runway in use at MKE before nor have I ever seen MKE this active after midnight!! Very interesting listening to liveatc.net right now... lots of coordination and vectoring going on to get everyone lined up for 13.

Lots of crazy things happening.. just heard Delta 1715 on final get visual approach clearance for rwy 13 with opposite direction traffic (SKW 387U) landing on rwy 31! Now I wish I could be out there to watch all of this!

I remember back in the day YX's B1900s sometimes used 13.
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.
