1st Frontier A319 Makes Emergency Landing In PHX

Thu May 17, 2001 8:52 am

Frontier's newly delivered Airbus A319 made an emergency landing at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport today. I've been told that it had just been flying in from Hamburg via Nfld. and Bangor, ME when it landed this afternoon. Apparently it lost nosewheel control when it reached PHX and was met by fire trucks and was towed off the runway. It then took off about 2 hours later.

Thats a shame. If it took of 2 hours later it must have been a very small thing.

Was the delivery flight BGR-DEN? If so, why did it divert to PHX? That's a bit out of the way, isn't it?

Evidently, it is going to Goodyear Municipal Airport (GYR) near Phoenix for its FAA Certification and will be there awhile.
