We always fly Southwest when possible. They had a very good reputation among the military pilots

The assumption was, for various reasons, among them, that SW had many ex military fliers, that if somethingvwent wrong they could handle it better than anyone

Their record stands for itself

I dont think they were yet a corp when Rainman was frantically looking for a safe ride

Looks like the gear failed during taxi

Dunno

As good as this?

Or this:


UA 232. Crash landed it with NO flight controls after a catostrophic loss of an engine.
35 died due to smoke inhalation
76 died for reasons other than smoke inhalation
47 were seriously injured
125 had minor injuries
13 had no injuries

Seriously, any landing you can walk away from....

We agree wholeheartedly. We fly LUV (Soutwest) whenever we can.

We were returning to Albuquerque on American one time several years ago and the front landing gear dropped into a pot hole while we taxing to the gate. Whooops. We had to wait for one of the tractors come out to get us as the plane could not push us out of the hole. Funny to talk about it now.

I can imagine the feelings of the passengers if the whole front end drops down as it did at LGA.
