United Express Hard Landing At LAX

Mon Jun 13, 2005 3:06 pm

Just saw a quick news flash on ABC 7 about a United Express hard landing at LAX that happened around 30 minutes ago. One runway shut down. Has anyone seen or heard more?

It was not a hard landing. The nose gear collapsed.

Yeah, the 25 rwys were shut down tonight, causing all the airlines that use that runway to use 24L tonight. What a mess it was! We had WN, US, and AC trying to taxi down the T1/T2 alleyway with a Delta 764, NZ 744, Philippines 744, and KE 744 all trying to take off.

I was on the DL 764 10:30 red-eye to ATL....our pilot really didn't elaborate on why the south runways were shut down, but it was a really funny lineup waiting to take off on one of the north runways. All I could see from the DL terminal were lots of flashing emergency lights....how long were the south runways closed down last night after all things considered?

Tbangor, if the flight number that Western heard is correct, its a CRJ-200.
