I know it's a BIG plank but the skill of the pilot here in keeping that bird ROCK steady must be quite a feat.

Report first then a video too with passenger interjection - filmed from several different angles and broadcast on the plane to the passengers! Scary or what.

then click on :

LOS ANGELES (AP) ??? A JetBlue airliner with faulty landing gear touched down safely Wednesday at Los Angeles International Airport after circling the region for three hours with its front wheels turned sideways, unable to be retracted into the plane. (Video: http://usatoday.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM115954)

Click on the following: www.flywithjoe.com for an mp3/podcast of the early RT exchanges of the event! (Episode 8 and a half.)

Interesting to note the maintainence guy giving assurances that later proved to be entirely wrong! "Yeah it's fine - just an indication error!"

Edited to update.

Professional airmanship at its best, no question there.
