UA landing at Newark

Plane Makes Emergency Landing at Newark Airport
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A plane made a rough landing at Newark Liberty Airport after experiencing landing gear problems.

United Airlines flight 634, which was coming in from Chicago, made the emergency landing after the pilot reported the problem.

The plane safely landed around 9:30 a.m., and was met by emergency vehicles.

The crew and passengers were safely removed from the plane.

No injuries were reported and no word as to what the exact issue with the landing gear was.








Then there's this from The News Bizarre

United Airline 634 Emergency Landing at Newark International

United flight 634 has made an emergency landing at Newark International airport in New Jersey, reports MSNBC.

The United Airlines Flight 634 landed at Newark successfully after their right rear landing gear failed to deploy. All pasangers and crew are said to be okay.

United Flight 634 crash landed at 9:30am local time, reports said.

The United Airlines Flihgt 634 is now sitting on the Newark International tarmac. All flights out of Newark are temporarily suspended reports said, due to the emeargency landing of Flight 634.

The United Airlines aircraft was an Airbus and was travelling from Chicago to Newark with 53 passengers on board.






So depending on where you get your news, it was either a "rough landing" or a "crash landing."

Still blocking one of the runways as of 2 hours ago. Landing are coming in on the cross runway - which is a bit of a shock as a PAX if you're not expecting it

Nose wheel in the air? The forward position of the engines obviously has it's drawbacks. I don't think I would like to slide down that slide, that's for sure.

Had this been an AA bird, crew would be immediately found at fault. At least around these here parts.





coat, hat, galoshes...

RAT deployed...hydraulic problems or SOP for this kind of issue?

Also, can't help but notice from the pics how close the aircraft is to the centerline, well done chaps!

I think the RAT comes out automatically when electrical power is cut which should be part of the gear up landing procedure.

It's been awhile, but I think the RAT will deploy automatically if AC 1 and AC 2 are lost above 90kts with the nose wheel off the ground, or it could have been deployed manually as part of some procedure or SAMC request.

Post 11's second picture is very interesting. Normal sequencing for the gear would be handle to down, MLG doors sequence open, main gear unlocks and gravity assisted falls to the 'locked position' (MLG actuator can push it so that the sidebrace goes overcenter), then the MLG doors are finally sequenced closed. Appears here that the RMLG door did not open all the way prior to the gear becoming unlocked (or the gear never reached the fully up and locked position when retracted the last time) and hung on the door. Because the gear did not extend all the way, the doors were not sequenced closed again (both remained open).

Surprises me that the door would be strong enough to hold the weight of the gear + the actuator force. I would assume that the crew attempted at least one re-sequencing.

OK, I'm not a pilot, but even I know that the failure of the landing gear to deploy is in no way the fault of the flight crew.

real captain speaking:

The last few posts have given me a huge grin.

So...

1. The plane is probably not a ''write off"...

2. The crew might not have entered a holding pattern to do their emergency check lists (we call them non routine or non normal) but they sure tried to get the geat down using normal and alternate methods

3. Embry Riddle is not the only way to learn to fly (I smiled the heck out of that one)

4. The landing gear doors on my favorite airliner support the gear while in normal flight...

5. Someone said that the nose of this plane looked like the DC6...well I think most Boeings (this was an airbus of course) look like an F7 diesel Locomotive

6. There are quite a few real pilots (atp etc) on this forum.

7. If I were flying to the New York area, I wouldn't go to Newark. (which some of us call "Sewark" as in sewer)


and finally...someone who doesn't NEED TO LEARN what an airline pilot does/is...probably needs to learn more than anyone else.


(ps...the crew could be at fault if they didn't do a proper walk around preflight inspection and missed an obvious problem...I'm sure they did do a proper walkaround...there is a remote possibility that some slush from Chicago was thrown into an unusual spot and froze up at altitude and didn't melt...thus jamming the gear...but one incident in the past had a mechanic place a wheel chock into a spot on a 737 and it jammed the gear...usair/piedmont...they showed that one on tv too)

DC-10/MD-11 main gears also have no uplocks. Door uplock is how they're held up.
