    They are showing the landing on Fox now. Plane just did a flyby and is trying to land soon. May have a blown tire.

    That seems to be MY problem today! I hope this plane lands safely. It could take awhile to burn off fuel if they had just taken off from West Palm Beach with a full tank.

    I am guessing the landing gear wouldn't go up after take-off, yes?! If not...why not go ahead and make the flight to Chicago?! Oh, the conditions would be much better in Miami and probably the response.

    CNN saying should land within 10 mins and they don't seem too concerned that there should be any problems.

    I wonder how the mood on the plane is?

    I didn't freak until our pilot did on a flight from NYC to Chicago once when another plane was coming in on us and he avoided a collision. He got caught cussing up a storm on the intercom system.

    Watching it on tv is nerve racking enough for me.

    The worst for me was sitting on a runway for a very long time while it was de-iced over and over. Finally we were cleared for take-off and while climbing the lights and engines cut out for a good minute. You could feel the plane glide then drop over and over again. No one made a sound. Finally the engines sputtered back on and the lights came on. I looked behind me at where the stewardesses were seated and they were terrified. They told me they didn't know what happened and never experienced it before.
