WKYC 3 is reporting that a Continental Express ERJ-145 nose gear collapsed and the aircraft slid off the runway in what looks lik extremely snowy conditions in Cleveland. The story and photo are provided at:

I was out at DTW earlier today when the diversions were coming in, I was kind of suspicious something was up over in CLE due to about 4 COEx ERJ's, 2 CO 737's, and 2 AA (former) TWA MD-80's arriving in a 30 minute period. I figured some of those were legitimate DTW ops, but obviously not all of them.

We've got 5 inches and deepening here in CLE. The ERJ skidded off runway 6L where it's gear collapsed. Traffic was stopped around 1PM but should be close to normal now.

Actually Stretch they set fire to the river whenever conditions go Cat III. The warm toasty glow brings the birds right down to the concrete. (Of course it's Lorain Avenue but still).

Seriously, your data is outdated.....the only true flammable items in downtown Cleveland is the hair in the armpits of the Pittsburgh Steeler womenfolk when they visit to cheer on their team.

Holy Crap!
What a great shot at Steeler fans!

I seriously never gave the Browns a shot, without Couch and all, but at least you did not pull a move only the Houston Oilers could get away with. In 1992, we, er I mean they, had a 35-3 lead and lost. Now that is a record that will NEVER be broken - EVER.

Sliding off the runway caused the nosegear to collapse or the nose gear collapsing caused the plane to slide off the runway?

Doesn't really say in the article.

CoAir...WTH? Righhhhttt... Anyways, getting back to the ERJ, I'm pretty sure it was N16571 delivered in October 2002. Brand new! On the news, people were acting like they were going to die! They were like "once I saw the snow flying passed the windows I knew we were doomed, so I just braced for the impact." And they were saying how they were coming in too fast. I don't know what these people are talking about! Its kinda hard to tell you are coming in fast with a very limited visibility, also, the snow will be flying past the windows at 130kts!! lol

I wonder if the gear collapsed causing it to skid off the runway. The pics I saw on the news clearly showed the nose "down" in the ground but because of all the snow it was hard to tell if it was the gear that collapsed or that it kinda ran into a ditch. I about a month or so there was an ERJ that immediately after pushback had the nose gear collapse. I dont know what became of that investigation, though. I was thinking that maybe the pilots inadvertantly hit the gear up lever, but thats seems unlikely. There was another time about a month ago that I was waiting on an XRJ arrival(the new ERJs with the winglets) and the aircraft had to be towed into the gate with one of the mini supertugs after the captain reported some type of problem with the nose gear. That aircaft was BRAND NEW as well...no more than a week or 2 old. So, has anyone else heard of any nose gear problems with the Embraer ERJs or are those just 3 isolated gear related incidents? I'm curious now.

I agree with Expressjet, the stupid passengers don't know what the heck they're talking about and it's a waste to interview them. I remember last year a DL MD80 went off the runway and the pax they interviewed (a yokel) said something to the effect of "we were comin in REAL fast and when we hit the ground the pilot threw it into reverse...." First, how do you judge speed from your 6 inch across window? And second, how does one "throw an airplane into reverse?" Whatever. As for COboeing, you can't hit the gear up lever on the ground, there is a safety pin in the gear.

N766UA, I'm not sure if this is true(maybe someone can confirm) but I think that if the gear lever on an RJ is raised on the ground, the nose gear will go up. Its the main gears that won't because there are sensors that detect weight on wheels. I know a mechanic told me that was at least true for the MD80s. This is only what I've been told by a mechanic so maybe he was pulling my leg, I don't know.

You may be correct, COboeing, but i thought all gear were secured if the pin was in- as in pushback.

You have to hit an override switch as well as lift the lever on the ground. That means you would have to really want to raise the gear on the ground in order to lift the handle. The incident in EWR involved a pushback crew and I don't know the details. I've had a bit of a problem getting the reversers to open on landing but it is normally an air/ground sensor problem associated with a x-wind landing or a smooth landing( in my case the first scenerio is more common). On an icy runway with wind and blowing snow you normally just plant it which can't confuse the air/ground sensors and reversers deploy easily. The picture of this plane depicts 2 reversers still deployed after the aircraft is stopped so at least we know they worked at some point.
Passangers sensationalize stuff so much and the press just loves it. How many times have you heard a passanger blow something way out of proportion. It's just what they do. I'm not trying to make light of the typical passangers experience on this landing as it must have been eventful, but the press letting them make judgement calls as to why the plane went off the runway is rediculous. But then again, when has the press ever let the truth get in the way of a sensational TV interview?

N766UA...are you talking about the bypass pin to prevent the flight crew from steering the nose gear during pushback? I think thats what you are referring to about puhsback. The RJs dont use a bypass pin like 737, 757s, 777s, etc. use. Just disconnect the towbar and the headsets and you're done.

About that nosegear collapse at EWR I was talking about... what I remember is that the gear collapsed as the plane began to taxi, well after the towbar and such was disconnected.

ExpressJet_ERJ..would you find out about that if its true about the nose gear. I'd like to know for sure. I can't ask any MX myself as I just left on a COLA.

One more thing...a/c # 571....I remember seeing that aircraft about a week or two ago just before I left. I remember looking at the tail # and saying to myself "its mising the U in front of 571" in reference to that movie U-571.

IAHERJ, must have been typing my post whlie you posted yours. Thanks for the info about the nosegear. I was thinking it couldnt be as easy as just flipping up the gear lever. I dont remember what the MX tech said exactly since it was a few years ago...but then again, he was talking about the MD80. anyways, enough of that. I did too notice that the clamshells were still deployed. I was wondering what the deal was with that.

the ERJ, does not have a nose gear bypass pin. The pilots simply hit a sterring disconnect trigger on the yoke, for pushback, or there is a sterring disconnect swich outside, on the newer ERJ's. (This is located on the forward left side of the fuselage). Or the Nose Gear steering breaker can be pulled for pushback. (MTX operations).

There is, however, gear pins that go in all 3 gear. These are used by MTX when moving aircraft. These are kept in the cockpit (behind the ca seat) and have "remove before flight" ribbons on them.

As far as the nosegear reatracting on the ground, this is unlikely due to the fact that there are proximity switches that are there to prevent it. Those same prox switches also have to be closed in order to allow the thrust reversers to operate (+ other perameters).

Hopefully this clears a few things up for you.
