Yeah, me was doing the same thing during my last 3 edits. Watching the landing and recording results. Veritos 16:22, 22 September 2005 (UTC)
Ended up being a very nice article. Do you think It should be in category:Disasters and accidents since it almost was a disaster, but no one got hurt? Bawolff 22:00, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Can someone get information on the nose wheel of the A320? I'm just wondering if it turns to the side when it retracts. That could explain how it came to be turned like it was. Imroy 22:26, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Why can't I find the name of the captains anywhere? They should definitely be mentioned.

The nose gear does NOT turn during retraction. A previous "I think America West" Airbus A320 did the same thing a few years ago. It was determined that a hydraulic o-ring failed on one side hydraulic cylinder causing all the hydraulic pressure to divert to one side only. "Thus locking the wheel in one direction." A service bulletin was issued to replace the o-rings with a new and improved design. The Jet Blue A320 is less than 6 months old and should have been built with the new design o-rings. "A side note: The airplane is new enough that all repairs should be covered at Airbus' expense."
