Ouch! Landing gear failure - with pics

Recommended Posts

Came in too heavy into LFPO (Orly, France) this evening. I don't know why. No excuses. METAR was fine, etc,

 

All 65 pax evacuated timely and fuel cut off/ engines down in a similarly timely fashion.

 

Left on the taxiway scratching head in disbelief. Right gear wheel ripped off with subsequent collapse.

 

Note to self; wine drinking or flying B738 - Decide!

Jim:

 

Maybe flying the B737 first.

If that doesn't work then, definitely, wine!!

PMDG - how about some actual escape slides? That would be cool to try.

Hi Dan,

 

I always understood it this way:

 

Good Landing = Everyone walks away

Perfect Landing = You can use the airplane again!

I remember such thing happening at the end of a 777X flight I did a while back - No damage to anything were noted, but the right landing gear clipped into the ground and the aircraft veered off the runway to the right. Probably something transient.

 

Still provided a rare justification to pull the evac alarm...not that it's a good thing, of course^^;;
