My wife, who works at a Long Island hospital, just called me to say that they were told of a crash at ISP. About ten minutes ago, I heard a strange-sounding plane overhead (I'm about five miles east of the airport). That's all I know.

Well.....if it hasn't hit the media yet. Then I'm assuming it's a private plane.

Hopefully no one was injured.

And Seeing that PROSA's wife works at a hospital, they'd most likely be getting the crash victim(s). Not everything is speculation.

I just drove past the airport and saw some emergency vehicle flashing lights a bit to the east of the terminal. Nothing too big. The aircraft must have gotten down safely. I also saw quite a few Suffolk County PD units and a couple of ambulances heading away from the airport, so apparently there had been a sizeable turnout as the aircraft approached.
I'll still say, I never heard anything as strange as the aircraft's sound as it passed overhead.

News12 (Long Island) just reported Authorities said a passenger plane had problems with its landing gear and therefore had to make an emergency landing. The airport was temporarily closed, and emergency crews were in position. Aircraft landed safely.

PROSA,
Many times on this forum the news media is criticized for wrong information or jumping to false conclusions. This is an example of the members being too fast with a topic header and follow-up messages.

OK Here are the facts:

An ASA CRJ-700 reported a problem with the nose gear while operating DL 4592 ATL-ISP. As a precaution the emergency equipment was ordered out, THERE WAS NO CRASH. The pilot made a completely normal landing, but was unable to steer once on the ground therefore the aircraft had to be towed to the terminal.

There were no injuries and no damage to the aircraft. I repeat THERE WAS NO CRASH.

The emergency equipment and the closing of local roads is standard protocol and was done ONLY as a precaution.

I believe we figured that out. Im sorry this forum is full of assholes who are completely unforgiving and sit on their high horses all the time while being completely hypocritical thereafter.
Makes you wonder how Johan claims these forums are known for their high quality doesnt it?

Agreed.

God guys......give it a rest. This post was started before facts were known and all we are trying to do is figure it out.

Excuse us for being curious and not meeting your requirements for what a good post is (like i care...its a free country)

If we did not satisfy your ever so precious taste in what a good post is, then forgive us for being born in the first place.

Now that this is figured out, why dont we all just shut up about it?

It was as Art said an ASA plane, NOT a Delta Express as Delta 717 said. The gear didn't want to come down, but the flight circled, got the gear down and all pax got off happy and safe. The funny thing is until just a short while ago, ASA still had the plane sitting on the ramp in the way of the other Delta and Comair aircraft. They thought that moving the plane was Delta's responsibility(even though it is their plane), yet the only way that plane can be moved is if someone is qualified to ride the brakes while being pushed by the tug. Unfortunately, that means a mechanic, and ISP doesn't have any of those.

Skyhawk- You mentioned that there are no mechanics at ISP. I can't believe an airport with the type of traffic that ISP has has no mehanic on duty. If this is really the case, my questions is, what happens when an a/c needs to have some work done on it by a mechanic? Do airlines who have no mechanics based at ISP fly them in to fix the a/c's?

When Delta has to have maintenance done on an aircraft of any nature, they have to send someone out from either JFK or LGA. In this case they ended up using a mechanic from the Jet Center (private planes are there) come over, they wanted to do this all along but ASA didn't want to pay for it.
