Delta CRJ Emegency Landing

Recommended Posts

Saturday night Delta flight 4951 bound for White Plains (KHPN) was diverted to JFK to make an emergency landing because of a landing gear failure on Saturday night. On landing it appears either the right gear collapsed or was never down causing sparks on landing. Thankfully no one was hurt. I'm a little surprised the Aviation RSS feed in the forum never picked up on this one!http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2010/09/25/2010-09-25_delta_plane_with_shoddy_landing_gear_makes_emergency_landing_at_jfk_airport_no_o.html

It's cool in this day and age of IPhone's and camera phones people can record an event like this from inside the cabin. To have the perspective of something like this from a passenger point of view is unprecedented. I'm glade everyone made it out safely. :(
