    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???

    and possibly landing with a 9-10 knot tail wind with contaminated runway?

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

    Okay - but on a 27-year-old frame?  Seems hard to imagine that it would be worth it.

    It all depends on the cost of the repair, the value of the plane and the insurance.

    looks like a couple more feet could have changed the outcome a great deal.


    No one will miss when this winter in the US ends

    The photo from the water shows that the plane took out quite a bit of the fencing as it slowed to a stop.

    commavia   AA had an MD80 damage at BWI last yr by a push back  and the plane after extensive repairs is back in the air.  Believe it was 499   But nonetheless the MD80 was originally a write off but AA got a favorable lease and thus they ferried the plane to TUL with gear down and the mechanics there did a fab job and got the plane airworthy again.

    More scary from that angle indeed.

    For those with access to DLNet, there's some interesting info on the OCC page. Nothing revelatory, just thought it might be worth passing along...

    and there are certain to be questions about how effective LGA's arresting systems are.

    and it would appear that ATC's configuration of the airport and the crew's decision to land were both right.

    there just isn't much margin for error at LGA.

    Get this information from the direct line you have with the IAM or the FA's involved?
