Belly landing at KEWR
« on: May 19, 2013, 10:34:23 AM »
Piedmont 4560 had to make a belly landing at Newark Airport early Saturday morning at around 1:00AM local time.  The flight crew could not get the landing gear to come down.  There were no injuries.

There does not appear to be any audio available for this flight; the various KEWR feeds may have been down at the time of the incident.
