a layer of foam helps prevent sparks/ignition.
|Quoting Swabur (Reply 34):|
Airport Fire officials will put foam on the runway to "soften" the runway and reduce the chance
|Quoting Swabur (Reply 130):|
Anyone in the LA area, tune to KABC 7 they have some jackass pilot saying that "They're making a bigger deal out of this that it needs to be"
|Quoting Jdwfloyd (Reply 179):|
I like the MSNBC reporter says it would be good for the nose gear to break off after landing. Good stuff.
|Quoting IRelayer (Reply 325):|
Why didn't they deploy the chutes?
|Quoting Vc10fan (Reply 339):|
No reverse thrust because broken parts and full throttle engine not good......
|Quoting JetBlueAtJFK (Reply 357):|
Good job. I was really scared when it was on final and then when the friction fire started, my heart was beating out of my chest. Thank God it landed safetly.
|Quoting JetBluefan1 (Reply 363):|
God is to thank. He gave the Crew the strength to land that flight flawlessly.
Way to go JetBlue!! Now that's why I fly this airline.
|Quoting Halophila (Reply 362):|
Excellent! B6 has my money for sure now... what a great landing! Well done!
|Quoting PyroGX41487 (Reply 367):|
That was freaking BEAUTIFUL!
WAY. TO. GO. B6.
Wait, are those pilots male or female? I heard that in this thread somewhere -- wanted to
|Quoting MNeo (Reply 184):|
On a lighter note, tomorrow/tonight we will see soo many pictures of the plane landing here on A.net
PS: Does anyone know the REG?
|Quoting Greggerm (Reply 323):|
Flames may have been residual brake fluid in the front gear getting loose and toasty with the sparks.
|Quoting Scottieprecord (Reply 351):|
man... we almost need to start a new thread for this one. Great job on the crew's part. I'm glad everything worked out.
|Quoting F9fan (Reply 391):|
I thought they would consider flying as far as DEN. It would burn off fuel, and DEN has a nice, long, 16,000 ft. runway.
|Quoting B744F (Reply 97):|
Fuel dump systems should be mandatory
|Quoting Korg747 (Reply 123):|
I'm kind of surprised that the A320 doesn't have a fuel dumping system. Does the 737NG have it?
|Quoting Korg747 (Reply 123):|
A question just out of curiosity, the FBW system in the A320s, how does it respond to such a case? because I don't recall any A320 that has encountered this kind of problem before. Does it give full control to the pilot and if not what does it control?
|Quoting SBN580 (Reply 133):|
Fly by wire was not perfected by the Europeans BTW! It was Americans where I worked at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at EDW that did in the 1970's!
|Quoting OptionsCLE (Reply 372):|
but to say that this actually makes you more inclined to fly the airline is foolish
