Flight 292, originally scheduled from Burbank to NYC. It's been orbiting over the ocean for over an hour dumping fuel.

Front wheel is turned 90 degrees. They are going to attempt a 'soft landing'. Should be shown on Fox live.

Someone forgot to hook up the torque links after pushback, or worse!

Is that an airbus?

It is actually burning the fuel off.

Scarebus A320 can't dump fuel. They are burning it off.

What they mean is a soft field landing. This is done in airplanes (mostly light) if you are landing on an un-improved airstrip. What you are doing is trying to keep as much stress off the nose gear as possible. You land at the lowest possible airspeed, then you hold the nose off as long as possible. It's not a "soft landing"

Looks like the nose wheel is there but turned 90 degrees.

How does Bush do it so well. First Katrina to get those Democrats in NO. Then Rita to follow those same Democrats now holed up in Texas, then a ton of financial aid to Texas (his home state), and now Jet Blue. Of course don't forget he never did tell what really happened to the AA flight that really didn't hit the Pentagon but used a cruise missile substitute.

Stupid damned newscasters.
"The airplane was headed for New York, so it most likely had enough fuel to get to New York"

No fucking shit. Who would have thought?

That's what I was thinking,but how would Airbus turn????? Right up there with pins not being pulled,has happened,RJ goes flying around with the landing gear down(thats what happens when you hire kids at $6 an hour!)
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 4:34:15 PM EDT
Would a front gear up landing be safer or gear down with wheels pointed in the wrong direction?
It's gonna get messy either way
do they start a fuel dimp before landing to lighten and reduce fire?
Prayers sent to them.

This is actually an evil conspiracy hatched by the executives of ABC. The premiere of "LOST" is tonight.

Coincidence? I think not!

On the other hand, who gives a fuck? Foam, some sparks, down the slides, lawyer up, sue. It's an in-flight-emergency. The news is shiiting themselved hoping for bodies. I only wish it was a plane-load of reporters, and they wind up as as greasy red streak on the runway.

p.s. hear we go again, cutting into Savage. I repeat, who gives a fuck?

wouldn't it be wiser to land the dern thing in a soft field rather than on a hard run way? Patty

No. Landing in a dirt field causes all sorts of hate an discontent. Instead of sliding to a halt under control on a hard surface, you could dig in and die.

I'm not sure you'd want the front gear to be able to dig in. That and I don't think there is a "soft" runway long enough.

It can't have been the pins or they couldn't have turned to taxi to active. They would have known the instant they pushed on a rudder peddle. Must be worse.

My dad and I had a nose wheel that wouldn't lock one day, tried twice, no light. He looked over at me and said "what are we gonna do" ? My stomach was in a knot when he laughed, reached under the dash and pulled the emergency hydraulic handle for the gear and it locked I was scared as hell. Wasn't as bad as the time the oil pump went out in the motor when we were taking off from Reno one day. I bet all the people on that plane are making some deals with god or the devil at this very moment. Probably won't be that big a deal though unless the nose doesn't snap off and they take a hard turn due to the angle of the wheels and roll over. Highly unlikely though.

If jets/planes dump fuel it usually evaporates before it hits the ground. Its good stuff.
