APG 109 – Malaysia 370, US Airways A320 Nose Gear Collapse, Delta B757 Loses Wing Panel

The Malaysia Airlines B777 is still missing. We may never know what happened. The only winners here are the big cable news outlets, which are reaping huge viewing numbers by continuing to sensationalize the investigation. Apparently, a steady string of “aviation experts” is helping to hold our interest… even if the credentials of some of these so-called “experts” is highly questionable.

What happened to US Airways 1702? Multiple eyewitness accounts say the airplane became airborne before attempting to return to the runway, and after a large bounce, came down hard on the nose landing gear, collapsing it. Was it windshear? Tailstrike?

A Delta B757 lost a large fiberglass panel from the top of the right wing as it started its initial descent into ATL. The flight landed safely in ATL.
