Southwest Airlines B737 in nose wheel collapse at LaGuardia

Post by Vaqar Khan » Tue Jul 23, 2013 5:13 pm

Ten people were left with minor injuries after a plane's nose wheel collapsed when it landed at New York's LaGuardia Airport, officials say.

Six of the casualties were taken to hospital after Southwest Airlines Flight 345 skidded off the runway, said airport general manager Tom Bosco.

Emergency vehicles surrounded the Boeing 737 from Nashville, which had 143 passengers and six crew on board.

The airport was shut temporarily, but later opened.

i am surprised with the initial findings by the NTSB that the Nose landing gear contacted runway before main landing gears :(
