    NYCAviation's twitter account has pictures up (@NYCAviation).

    CNN has also broke in with coverage, though they're (IMO) prematurely speculating on a main gear collapse, based solely on the same shots we've seen here. To my eye, it just looks like the A/C is sunk in...

    Everyone is ok, a few minor injuries, 130 people on board MD80 ATL-LGA.
     
    CNN has video of passengers evacuating.

    You can see the main gear in the pics, I think the nose gear is probably gone.

    CNN is saying that LGA is closed to all traffic until 7 pm.

    The nose broke thru a fence - hope the pilots are ok. CNN is saying just some minor injuries.

    there is one more thing interesting   the thrust reverser does not appear to be deployed     also not a lot of margin for error at LGA  so the quest cld be  where did the plane touch down at   the exact point im sure would play a role???

    Yikes - way more scary from that angle.  Looks like a W/O to me.  Glad there were no severe injuries.
