We've seen the first pictures of the Nike jet with langing gear problems as it completes flybys at the Hillsboro Airport. The video clearly shows the right main gear is stuck in a near-upright position. While this will be a tricky landing for the pilots, that's not to say its impossible. All commerical and corporate pilots train for events just like this. It's likely we'll get to watch these pilots' skill play-out as they bring this to a spectacular and safe conclusion.
PDX TRAVELERS: Flights are operating on-time currently. If the emergency landing takes place at PDX, expect some minor delays later in the afternoon. Check http://www.flypdx.com/flights.aspx for the latest flight information.
