It is down and the gear did not collapse. Well done Airbus for designing a strong nose gear.

It landed well, and that is a relief, It seemed to be a normal landing other than the sparks and flames, and that is a good thing.

That was really terrific landing. It was very impressive to see that nose gear to hold up, I completely expected the thing to snap like a twig with all of that firiction in was fighting. Even if the gear had snapped, the plane probably would have been fine, there just would have been a rather large "bump" inside the cabin.

Unless you mean because this incident made Airbus aircraft look very sturdy, then you are kinda wrong.

That was an Airbus A320.

The airbus seems to be having some troubles because instead of having the whell fixed to the gear, it rotates. I dont think this is a wise idea. I'd like to fly a plane that doesn't have an additional step that could go wrong when there is no reason I can think of to have rotating wheels...

That landing was perfect. I heard about it around 30 minutes before landing. I was so worried that the front landing gear would snap back into the gear well and the plane would ride on the hull, but thankfully that didnt happen. I want that pilot on my plane next time I fly.

Good pilot,. new planes=good safety. Still, I think Airbus needs to rethink the front landing gaer

[COLOR=black][COLOR=black]It probably was a result of accidental damage or faulty maintenance, almost all incidents involving commercial aircraft are. If it were design, there would have been more instances of landing gear failure on the A-320 by now, it’s been in service since 1988 without any problems in this area, and I don't think that there have been any recent modifications to the landing gear that would suggest that a design change caused the defect either.[/COLOR] [/COLOR]
