On the news right now is a Gulfstream belonging to Nike that is trying to make an emergency landing in Portland, Oregon with the right main gear up.

Well, they got the gear down somehow and landed without incident. You could tell all the news folks were disappointed that it didn't end in a ball of fire.

Glad it's down safely, but as you say, the ghouls in the press will be disappointed

Yes, well it serves Nike right - glad there was no loss of life or casualties but wish the aircraft was a right-off. I hate Nike - treating poor people with poor working conditions and the like - i mean come on (2 sips of water and 1 use of the loo in a 10 hour shift is bludy rediculous)

I have to agree about the press,I would like to see the papers Headlines, last year Here in Glasgow A United Airlines 777 made an emergency landing due to smoke in the main Cabin ,if you had believed the papers this aircraft started with 300 passengers and by the end had 500 all in a mid air impending disaster, just the other day a BMI 319 was quoted as being Jumbo what next doudle deck fokker
