Surely they saw the first attempt with no wheels down. A belly landing is not something a control tower would normally ask about after a mayday call. This report will make interesting reading.

Sounds like there was only one pilot and a mechanic on board at the time. And not the ‘regular’ pilot, possibly. But that’s all my guesswork from reading here.

Sadly, this is America now. As long as Wall Street is happy with the stock performance, everything else is immaterial.

Planes full of loofahs crashing? Who cares. Earnings dividends are being paid.
