Sort out the reason the wheel didn't drop and a bit of paint and it will be flying on Monday morning  :y

In the grand scheme of things, there's plenty worse to go wrong ;)

Any injuries most likely to be from trying to use the front steps rather than the actual landing...

Last time I flew Flybe, they had to get a replacement plane, as our puddle jumper broke en-route to us (so a jet to get from St Helier to Southampton - that should have been the worlds fastest flight).

That was a longer than planned flight, as the pilot had to abort the landing part way through the approach as a light aircraft got in the way ;D

Another pilot discovers the expensive way to paint a line down a runway. ;D

Still, could have been much more messy. At least it was only the nose gear. ;)

I'd still consider it messy enough, if I were approaching the tarmac sat in that thing without one of the wheels down  ;D

My pants would have got very messy at the first sign of trouble. I'm not a good flyer at the best of times.  :-[ ;D

So when planes dump fuel, does that mean that they're flying along pishing kerosene out the back?  :o  :-\

Yep, but normally over water otherwise is burnt off.

Yes, but I don't believe the assertion that the fuel evaporates and disappears.  It goes somewhere, probably helps form a cloud and then comes down in the rain. Nice!  ::)

I'd be surprised if something as small as a DASH-8 is equipped to jettison fuel.
