Piedmont/USAir Express Gear Up Landing @ EWR
« on: May 18, 2013, 11:28:43 AM »
Any audio of this?

"NEWARK, N.J - An airline official says a US Airways flight with 34 people aboard was forced to make a belly landing at Newark International Airport after experiencing landing gear trouble. No injuries were reported.

US Airways spokesman Davien Anderson tells The Associated Press that a turboprop plane that left Philadelphia shortly before 11 p.m. Friday landed safely at Newark with its landing gear retracted at about 1 a.m. Saturday.

Anderson said the flight, being operated by Piedmont Airlines, was carrying 31 passengers and three crew members. He says the plane circled Newark in a holding pattern while working to get the gear down. After several failed attempts to get the gear down, the plane landed on its belly.

Anderson says the passengers were evacuated to the terminal by bus. He says US Airways is cooperating with the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the incident."

Feeds are "up" but no archives are available after 00z on May 18th....for ANY feed - at least that I can tell. Too bad...sounds like there would've been some great listening there... Hopefully the archiving issue will be fixed soon. I tweeted the problem just in case Dave wasn't aware.
