US Airways A320 misses take-off in Philadelphia

Post by sn26567 »

Impressive ! A US Airways Airbus A320 with destination Fort Lauderdale in Florida missed take-off in Philadelphia when nose landing gear collapsed. There were 13 Belgians on board, all of them are unharmed. There are three people wounded among the 149 passengers.

The plane was briefly airborne before the pilot turned back. The tire blew, causing the nose gear to collapse. All 149 passengers and five crew members aboard Flight US1702 were evacuated safely.

The 13 Belgians on board were actually a group of firefighters and they did help with the evacuation of the plane ;)

Oh no, the US labour unions will have them arrested for that. Or, more likely, make them disappear.
