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

About half an hour ago:

Looked like a nice smooth landing.

Are they going to change the companies slogan?

Who needs wheels when You're under good wings

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. =]
