717s don't dump fuel, do they? Aren't they burning off fuel?

A pilot on MSNBC suggested that it could have been a blown tire at take off, or door or landing gear problem. It can only be determined when back on the ground. Apparently the lights for the right side gear positions are showing a problem. It is apparently a full flight 86 pax/4 crew (2 pilots/2 f/a's). It is a being id'ed as a flight to MKE. It is a 717 (so at least a recent production a/c). Let's hope that this ends up as good as the JetBlue flight into LAX in September.

Trust CNN and every other news station to get it all wrong.

Best of luck to Midwest, I just heard that a police helicopter has a visual on them, is that standard procedure?

Lord...Fox News has a guy from Midwest on, and they asked him if this was mechanical or "pilot error."

I wanted the guy to come back and say, "Well, Bob (or whatever his name is), there's a lever. It has a "Gear Up" and a "Gear Down" position. If the pilots haven't figured out which is which, we have bigger problems than this."  Yeah sure

It has been clarified on MSNBC that the 717 is 'burning' not dumping fuel. It has to burn much of it's fuel to lighten up the a/c, especially with a possible weakened landing gear.
