Accident? Really? It's just a problem not an accident.

American junk at its best, American equipment is SHIT and American Pilots always seem to be crashing their Airplanes....its a nightmare to fly in any American Airline or in any American Airplane. Americans do not understand and have not implemented a thing called Quality Control yet....they still fly by the seat of their pants. USA = PURE RUBBISH.

ACCIDENT? HARDLY. Mechanical due to nose wheel over steer, yes. Mechanical, not accident...no collision with anything happened.

Here, HEAR! I concur with Mr Treetop64! Judas, Monsieur ClickBait. A simple, yet squawkable Nose Gear malfunction. The Tug, able to circumvent the Hydraulics with a removable FlightFlag or Flightpin, if you prefer. Which, the Groundcrew always inserts in the Landing Gear upon shutdown at their respective gate. Required if you want a Tug on Pushback. (Sounds like an oxymoron 🤣) I suspect they have a Hydraulic Issue. I hope you don't scream, in flight, "We're going down. WE'RE GOING TO DIE", because your Aircraft hits some turbulence. NUMBNUT!

At first, the "accident" clickbait make my mind to think this was a plane simulator. But then, the landing gear looked "very realistic" to be a simulator. That was weird.

Were the passengers allowed to deplane during repairs?

What camera did you use to record that video? The quality is stunning. I honestly thought I was watching an MSFX video until I saw the ground crew working the landing gear.

edal61 (1 year ago)
To me it looked as if the pilot did not straighten the nose gear on time, it seems like so because they increase the power after stopping, expecting the aircraft to move forward as if the gear was straight, instead the aircraft keeps on turning left.

I worked line service at Teterboro NJ for many years. Back in the 80s we had a regular customer with a Canadair Challenger 601. It either suffered a hard landing on the nose gear during arrival or it happened many months prior....no one knows. It taxied in, we parked it, and later attached the tow bar to move it. The tug had not even moved the plane a few feet and BANG......the trunion pin in the nose gear snapped. The nose gear shifted precariously about 10 degrees past vertical. It then took about 8 hours to get the nose lifted onto air bags on top of a dolly and get the airplane into the hangar. Once there, it took 2 mechanics 30 days to dismantle the nose gear assembly all the way down to the sheet metal inside the well and repair it just enough to fly the plane out with the gear locked in the down position. It was taken back to the factory for a full repair. We were told the damage estimate was closed to 1 million. Many people blamed the tug driver. But the mechanics knew better. There is no way to do that kind of damage with a tug. A tug would have broken the sheer pins to which the tow bar attaches to, thus letting the tow bar fall to the ground without shock damage to the nose gear assembly.

You idiot! This is not classified as an "accident," but as an incident if any! THRUST ON THE LEFT SIDE WOULD HAVE RESOLVED IT!
long knight (1 year ago)
The nose gear was hydraulically locked, thrust would not have done anything to resolve the problem. The failure was a mechanical problem. Sometimes you just need parts to fix things.

Do you know nothing about aircraft? Why exactly would you have to replace the entire nose gear? What wasted fuel are you talking about? Bad PR? Well. it happens when you are honest with the public.

American seems to have a lot of maintenance issues of late...

American made means nothing lol our cars are garbage
Tyler Buckley (1 year ago)
Because that company likes to take short cuts on maintenance of the aircraft look at Chicago DC10 disaster it was a maintenance problem not using the proper tools or equipment that caused the engine on the left wing to fall off that was caused by a fracture when a fork lift was removing the engine from the pylon on the wing mount now if they used the proper lift for that engine it would not have crashed on take off like that AA is notorious for that short cuts just to save money I would rather fly southwest airlines than american Any day

It's a BOEING 757!... not an Airbus...
long knight (1 year ago)
I think this airplane is made by Air Bus not a US built airplane. More junk from Europe!
Ryan Collier (1 year ago)
One reason of that is because of US Airways, like in this video that 757 is ex us, the other reason is because one of Americans main maintenance facilities, Fort Worth Alliance, closed in 2015. (Which was a really stupid idea because it's putting many 757 and 767s out of service)

N939UW was manufactured in 11/94, it's owned by a Wells Fargo Bank Aviation Leasing-Salt Lake City, Utah, leased to America West Airlines as a new aircraft, then transferred into US Airways and in 2014 transferred to America Airlines. The aircraft as with all HP 757's was equipped with Rolls Royce RB 211 engines. Next D Check 1/2019

Hey, opinions are a thing. Would you fly on a "scarebus" if you were forced to? Or otherwise be shot. Airbus aint better than boeing, boeing aint better than airbus. Can we just stop this fucking A vs B war? Aircraft of both airlines do their job, bring homo sapiens from point A to point B.

+SlappingMachine 121 How do you know fly by wire would NOT exist without Scarebus ???? Many military planes have used fly by wire for many many years !!! It is NOT an Scarebus thing !!!!!! DUUUUHH !!!!

Look, don't blatantly hate on airbus. If it wasn't for Airbus, fly-by-wire systems wouldn't exist. I say it again, BOTH companies are great. The latter isn't better OR worse than the former.
