AA185 - Possible Gear Problem

Wed Mar 23, 2005 10:37 am

Hello all,

I am listening to JFK approach and right now they have emergency situation. This came directly from the ATC. Well, the flight involved is AA185 Heavy. A PNF stated that they have a gear indicator problem. I believe that they will be landing on 13R.

If anybody has more info, please post it here. Thanks!

BTW, I am aware that these kind of situation are really not big deal, but it is very interesting to hear it live.

Cheers,
Andrej

ATAIndy,

I have checked an AA.com and now I see that the flight number belongs to flight that departs JFK and arrives at LAX. The type should be B762.

Maybe I got the flight number wrong, but there is a defintely something going on at JFK.  

Cheers,
Andrej

EDIT: Come to think about it. It actaully might be flight bound for LAX. The pilot stated that they need to burn some more fuel anyways, and they have requested to stay at lower altitude. (2000 feet)
