Passenger Jet Lands on Nose After Landing Gear Fails

A passenger jet was forced to make an emergency landing on a runway at a Texas airport late Monday night after part of its landing gear failed to deploy, according to NBC Houston affiliate KPRC. The flight, operated by U.S. Airways, was photographed by a passenger with its nose on the ground at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. According to KPRC, the pilot and airline decided to land without the nose gear after contacting the FAA. All 52 passengers and four crew members on board were forced to exit on emergency slides, the airline said in a statement to NBC News. One passenger was taken to a local hospital but the airline believed their injuries were not serious.
