A JetBlue A320 with its front landing gear rotated 90 degrees landed safely (video available) at LAX after circling the airport for three hours. The flight from Burbank to JFK was diverted nearly immediately after the pilots realized what had happened. Passengers were able to watch their own flight on the news on the in-plane TVs. The pilot made a pretty amazing landing on its back wheels (a la the space shuttle) and all arrived safely. An America West A320 had a similar problem several years ago and landed without incident. JetBlue flies all new planes, so the age of the aircraft is not an issue (actually, the age of the aircraft is rarely an issue, but I thought I’d mention it anyway).
