JFK Emergency Landing

Sunday, September 26, 2010
By George Hatcher

What: Atlantic Southeast/Delta Airlines Canadair CRJ-900 en route from Atlanta to White Plains, New York
Where: New York
When: Sept 25 2010 8:20 pm
Who: 60 passengers 4 crew
Why: Approaching White Plains, the crew realized the right landing gear was jammed. The pilots diverted to JFK, and made an emergency landing described as being “a shower of sparks” on the tarmac but no fire ensued. The plane skidded to a stop leaning to one side, after utilizing only 2/3 of the landing gear.

Passengers rode a bus to terminal three, and told reporters about their terrifying landing, full of praises for the captain and crew. Delta apparently provided a bus to take them to their correct destination.
