MP3 Of B6 292 Radio Convo With Ground Staff...

I hope this hasn't been posted before....I ran a search to check...

Somebody with a scanner managed to capture some VERY clear audio of JetBlue Flt. 292 talking with B6's technicians on the company freq when the problem happened with the nose gear. This has been converted to MP3 as part of an internet radio program.

Four items of note as you listen:

1. B6's ground staff insisted that the nose gear sensor was giving a false indication and was not canted 90 degrees. They advised he land at LGB. Not LAX.

2. This problem occurred on the exact same aircraft earlier.

3. LGB's runway is shorter and narrower than LAX.

4. At some point after this communication Captain Burke apparently had reservations on the advice he was given and decided to go to LAX and arrange for a tower flyby to check the condition of the nose gear.

The host of the program makes it a point that the pilot exercised good judgement in getting a second opinion from LAX tower and to ultimately divert THERE instead of LGB like B6 wanted.

Cheers to Captain Scott Burke of Flight 292!
JEERS to Jet Blue's technicians for talking out their ass and wanting him to land at an airport with a shorter runway and less safety equipment.

Quoting KensukeAida (Thread starter):
2. This problem occurred on the exact same aircraft earlier.

He was flying N536JB. He referenced an earlier incident on N503JB at JFK...

Yea, this guy has a podcast called "Fly With Me". I've listened to most of them, including this one, they're pretty neat to listen to.

The tower fly by was actually at LGB and there are some great photos of said fly by on this site and elsewhere. And OPNLguy while I have a lot of respect for many of your excellent posts the Captain mentioned the previous incident with 503 but also a nose gear sensor fault write up that was cleared by MTC with 536 the day before the B6 292 incident.

Respectfully,
