turn on CNN

i dont think they have anything on their site yet but.a plane with 137 people in it is circling around the airport in LA to burn fuel, the landing gear is broken so they're gonna bring it in on a slide to the airport.

Re: turn on CNN

I hate all these people covering this, they are asking dumb questions to the experts "How is the mood like on the ground?"

Uh.. they are fine, they are passing out cocktails and playing some basket ball. The cops are down by 4, the fire fighters are kicking their ***..

WHAT THE **** DO YOU THINK?

Re: turn on CNN

the people covering this are definitely morons with some of the stuff they've been saying and asking. But was definitely 1 hell of a job on the pilots part to land it like they did

Re: turn on CNN

I can tell you with confidence that I am 80% sure a mechanic is at fault. On Aircraft nose gears there is link called a drag link or sissor link. This is 2 brackets. 1 attached to the upper part of the strut and the other to the lower strut or piston. The 2 when connected by pins is attached keeps the tires and gear straight and allow the pilot to steer inside the airplane. When you tow a aircraft out of the gate you have to disconnect these links so the tow truck can turn the aircraft allowing the lower strut to spin. When the tow is through you reconnect the links.

I bet the tow crew forgot to reattach the drag before releasing the Aircraft!!!!!!

The picture is of a smaller landing gear but you can see the sissor or drag link that holds the upper and lower strut in line. If that is left disonnected the tire will spin and the strut will extend to far to retract into the wheel well

Re: turn on CNN

^ That sucks, I wonder if anyone will be blamed or they'll just say "Uh it was a malfunction, it happens"

Re: turn on CNN

A pilot interviewed on FoxNews said that if the wheel doesn't re-center on take off, it will automatically lock in the 90* position. Not sure how that works with what Corey is talking about, but it sounded impressive none the less. He said it would happen about once every million take offs.

I really like how Hannity and Colmes kept asking the pilot questions trying to make it sound like a total tragedy and the pilot would shoot down their drama. It was kinda funny. He started the interview off "I don't understand why everyone is making this out to be more than it really is". Classic in my book.

It did piss me off though, I wanted to see the O'Reilly report on how some black folks are claiming that New Orleans was flooded on purpose. I guess I will have to catch the re-run later tonight. At least I can watch Trump slam the oil companies again and say "I bet they are all members of the same country club". lol

I was watching it at Rosie's Cantina, in Huntsville. I ordered a shot of 1800 as they started to land. When they got stopped, a cheer and applause went up, and I drank my shot. I'm flying to Boston tomorrow afternoon. That **** scares me ****less as-is.

I am sorry but that does not make any sense. pilots are great at flying but many of them really dont know jack about systems and maintenance. The gear and wheels have to be straight at takeoff and if the sissor link is attached it cant go sideways. Now the only other explaination would be either 1. a broken Sizzor link or 2. a hydraulic failure causing the pressure on one side of the gear to force it sideways. #1 is discounted because the sissor is disconnected to tow the aircraft from the gate andif it was broken it would have been noticed. #2 I discount is if the hydraulic steering system was bad it would shown up on sensors.

Without knowing everything I still say it was mechanical error and they did not connect the sissor correctly

I am sure I left out some of what he said, it just sounded interesting and kind of dumb at the same time. He just explained how this is not an unexpected thing in his own pilot mentality. All I know is in his mind it had something to do with it not centering at take off and this problem can only happen at lift off.

But, like you said, he is a pilot and I agree they are pretty out of the loop when it comes to maintenance so he is probably just talking out of his *** for that part. But, it was fun listening to him say y'all are making a bigger deal out of this than it needs to be and I do agree with that.

Besides, the part of the O factor they interrupted was great. Farrakan says the Army Corps of Engineers blew the levees in NO to save the quater and garden district. Bill also blew up real bad at Phil Donahue. He went off on him big time. Oh, and Philly boy thinks Cindy Shehan is doing a great thing. lol
