Ten people suffered injuries earlier today when the nose gear of a Southwest Airlines jetliner collapsed after landing at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
Southwest Flight 345 was landing at LaGuardia from Nashville about 5:40 p.m. when the accident occurred. The nose of the jet came to rest on the ground after the aircraft came to a stop, and passengers evacuated the aircraft on emergency slides.
The Federal Aviation Administration had originally said the crew reported a possible nose gear problem before landing, but later amended that to say that after it reviewed air controller tapes, no issues were noted ahead of time. The National Transportation Safety Board was aware of the incident and sent an investigator to the scene.
