Ialmost a motnh ago, JetBlue N536JB did the famous emergeny landing many of us saw live on TV. Has this aircraft already been repaired and if not, does anyone know when will it fly again ?

Any info would be welcome

I believe the entire nose gear assembly has been replaced and the airplane flew some 2-3 days after the incident. There was no, or at least minimal other damage, IIRC. Good job B6.

Yes, it is. I flew on it last Wednesday (10/12) from JFK to FLL. Flew fine.

Planes on the ground aren't making us any money. So just like with quick turn-arounds, we had to make a quick repair!
