Plane Crash Averted

A plane crash was averted when the landing gear was deployed at the very last second Sunday. The front landing gear of a Bombardier aircraft did not deploy on the first landing. It was forced to try again. This time it worked. Only moments before the plane would have teetered on its nose in a crash.

Similar incidents have become alarmingly frequent with Bombardier airplanes across several continents. Incidents have multiplied over the last few months. Bombardier is investigating the developing landing-gear problems.
