    hey I was at work and I missed it , what happened? the nose wheel was in a horizontal position



    2hot2coolme

    a few years ago I was at the airport when a Skymaster was attempting to land . 1 of the main gear failed to lock in the down position

    These are twin engine cessnas with a pusher and a puller prop. The passenger was trying to pull the gear in the lock position with his belt, didnt work , couldnt lock it manualy so they finally did a gear up landing. The guy did a pretty good job to

    That was must see TV for sure, watched the last 45 minutes of it, unreal landing, that pilot was very good, to say the least. I would have been freaked out in that bird.
    They said that landing gear did that before on a plane or there was a bulletin on it or something like that.
    The passengers should all get free flights for life, if any of em ever get on a plane again that is.

    according to the ntsb there was a safety bulletin on that situation that recomended an o-ring be replaced to prevent this failure. it was supposedly sent to any party who owned this type of vehicle. then again we all get the carrier service bulletins right?

    Sure we do......
    I said this in here before, a section with service bulletins from Mfgs listing their known problems and fixes.

    Nightly News on NBC reported that the same jet had a problem with the same nose gear(different flight)last week not locking,and giving a warning light alarm to the pilot.they landed OK and it was checked out and released till the LAX flight.

    That's the problem with some of those smaller, discount airlines, not enough maint and when it is done it is outsourced down south to guys without the credentials and such to do it right.
