Emergency Landing @ LAX?

Fri Mar 19, 2004 11:32 am

Did anyone hear anything about an emergency landing at LAX last night?

I came in on AA 1787 from FLL and heard some rumours about it, can anyone confirm?

I saw on MSNBC that a Falcon 2000 made a nose up landing somewhere in Califorina yesterday, I missed where they said it was. That might have been big deal.

The Falcon was on Tuesday afternoon. One of the local LA stations had video of it. It was supposed to go into SNA, had 14 execs on it, including the CEO, I believe the company was Scotts, the lawn supply, etc... The landing was perfect at LAX though right on the centerline and held up the nose as long as possible then gently touched it down, despite the lack of the front wheel. Quite a sight.
