Emergency landing for US Airways aircraft

A US Airways aircraft made an emergency landing without its nose gear at Bush Intercontinental Airport. The flight, bound for Houston from Philadelphia, noticed the landing gear was stuck and was forced to make an emergency landing. The aircraft landed safely and no one was injured. The National Transportation Safety Board has begun an investigation.

The airline disclosed in a statement: “American Airlines Flight 1825, operated by US Airways, from Philadelphia International Airport made a safe landing at Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport yesterday evening after the nose-gear did not deploy. The Embraer 190 had 52 passengers and a crew of four. The passengers exited the aircraft on the tarmac via aircraft slides. One passenger has been transported to a local hospital, however, the injuries of that passenger are not reported to be serious.  American’s primary concern at this time is for our passengers and crew. We are in contact with the authorities and cooperating with response efforts.”
