    That must have been "exciting" for the passengers. Was anybody injured? (Still not in the news in the US, yet.)

    Looked like a nice smooth landing.

    Are they going to change the companies slogan?

    So far no injuries reported - airport spokesperson said everyone is OK.

    Great landing. Did the luggage arrive yet?

    I just realized, that flight came from NJ. I walked over to the grocery store this morning. Just imagine if I had taken a plane instead and that it had a stopover in Okęcie

    Borek,

    That is the second incident in less than a week, on October 26th you reported a similar https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=544219" where IranAir 727 landed with the nose gear retracted. I would love to see the maintenance history of the front end hydraulics for both of these planes. Funny, how the same thing happened less than a week apart though.

    Rhody... :frown:

    "Lataj jak orzeł, ląduj jak Wrona" - fly like an eagle, land like a hooded crow.

    Pilot's name - Wrona - means hooded crow.

    The second clip says it's only available to users in Poland...

    It's good that no one was injured. =]
