On September 21, 2005, Jet Blue Airlines flight 292, an Airbus A-320, landed at Los Angeles International Airport, California, with the nose wheels
cocked 90 degrees. The 8 crewmembers and 140 passengers were not injured during this spectacular landing.
Before landing, the crew flew for several hours to burn fuel so that they could land at a lighter weight. The cabin crew emptied the first three rows of seats, and moved the baggage as far aft as possible. The plane touched down at 120 knots and held the nose gear off of the ground as long as possible. When the nose gear did touch down, there were sparks and flames from it, but no fire started.
