Happy Ending!

Give those pilots a standing ovation. Excellent job! I had tears from watching that incredible landing they did. Of course the pilots were probably very calm and professional. It was definitely an awesome spectacle to watch.

JetBlue Flight Lands Safely
140 Passengers Aboard Airbus A320

LOS ANGELES -- The airliner circled Southern California for hours, crippled by a faulty landing gear, while inside its cabin 140 passengers watched their own life-and-death drama unfolding on live television.

The pilot finally brought the plane down, back wheels first. As he slowly lowered the nose gear, the stuck wheels erupted in smoke and flames, which quickly burned out.
