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!
