Remark Photographer
N536JB (cn 1784) Del 05/24/2002 "Canyon Blue", tail livery "Squares" ex Airbus F-WWDS performs a low pass for the LGB tower for a nose gear inspection, and as you can see the nose gear is in a 90-degree position. Following the flyby, the aircraft spent the next 2 hours flying over the Pacific Ocean just off Long Beach burning fuel before diverting to LAX for an emergency landing, which happily was a succesful one without injuries.

It is incredible that you got a shot of this flyby at such a perfect moment! You can very clearly see what was the problem! Kudos to the pilot and to you for a great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 26, 2005:
Exceptional Work by the pilots...funny how the name of the aircraft is canyon blue, the same name that Southwest paints their jets, its kind of ironic...

A visitor from Chile posted Wed September 28, 2005:
Please let know the CNN spanish reporter, that airplanes like Airbus does not have a "wheal" in the cabin to direct the plane on ground. A big lapsus from a very important TV network!!

Fantastic foto!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 25, 2005:
Very nice shot, clear, captures that sideways nosewheel very nicely. The photographer was definitely in the right place at the right time!

A visitor from Australia posted Sun September 25, 2005:
Just a little info for you. If there's a fault, the wheels are *supposed* to do this, as it's safer having them point sideways than at some intermediate angle. Also the aircraft has been designed to land safely in this situation (but it looks impressive!)

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 24, 2005:
Oh no!

Hello Airliners.net,

I am Gabriel Fernandes and I am already a member of Airliners.net.

This photo is excellent because it shows the plane just before the incident and also the issue with the wheel.

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri September 23, 2005:
Just how the nose gear got sideways after take-off? Impossible from land obviously. Thank goodness that everything turned out good.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri September 23, 2005:
Watched the event on CNN, found out that all the passengers were watching themselves on CNN. It was unbelievebale to see the landing, and no injuries. Congrats to all involved.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 23, 2005:

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 22, 2005:
The image captures the impaired landing gear in just the right light.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu September 22, 2005:
Just seen the landing on TV. How the heck did he manage to keep the nose gear up that long? Amazing landing.

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 22, 2005:

Unless you knew about the event or weren't looking closely, this would be a normal shot.

Great to get the fly-by shot from LGB!
Good work!

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 22, 2005:
With the happy ending, this photo should be titled: God is my nosegear.
