United 216 hydraulics problem getting gear down to SNA
« on: January 06, 2010, 01:25:21 PM »
Just heard at 10:22 AM on the SNA feed.

They reported a hydraulics problem and need to circle to work on getting the gear down.

Sounds like they are heading to Los Angeles!  AND THAT FEED IS DOWN!

They are not yet declaring an emergency

Looks like they were able to divert and landed safely at LA.
