I have seen this happen before though, I've never had a chance to call others, for prayers.  I saw the hand, of God at work this evening. I had to go to town today, and stopped at Pat's Pizza. They had the TV on, on CNN. Showing a picture of a plane, in trouble.That flight was flight 292 Jet Blue. The plane's nose gear, as twisted, out of place.

I called my prayer group, and told them what was happening. For an hour and a half, I prayed. When the plane finally came in to land, I saw the nose gear, start to fold back. Fearing my prayers wasn't working, I prayed harder. I saw the plane lift up a little bit. The nose gear straighten up some, and the plane landed safely.

I know that that plane would have crashed if the hand of God wasn't there. Instead I saw the passenagers, and crew get off okay. That was 145 people on board flight 292.

Praise God, for no other is worthy.

Psalm 9:14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

Crippled Jet Lands Safely at L.A. Airport

By GILLIAN FLACCUS, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 14 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES - A JetBlue airliner with faulty landing gear touched down safely Wednesday at Los Angeles International Airport after circling the region for three hours with its front wheels turned sideways, unable to be retracted into the plane.

The pilot landed on the back wheels, then eased onto the awry front tires, which shot flames along the runway before they tore off. The metal landing gear scraped for the final yards as the plane came to a stop.

Within minutes of landing, the plane's door opened and the 140 passengers walked down a stairway with their luggage and onto the tarmac, where buses waited.

"We all cheered. I was bawling. I cried so much," said Christine Lund, 25.

Passengers said they had watched their own drama unfolding on the news on in-flight televisions until just before the landing. One described it as surreal to watch. Another said she would have been calmer without it.

"At the end it was the worst because you didn't know if it was going to work, if we would catch fire. It was very scary. Grown men were crying," said Diane Hamilton, 32, a television graphics specialist.

As the plane was about to touch the ground, Hamilton said, crew members ordered people to assume a crash position, putting their heads between their knees.

"They would yell, "Brace! Brace! Brace!'" she said. "I thought this would be it."

The plane landed on an auxiliary runway where fire trucks and emergency crews had massed as a precaution. No injuries were immediately reported among the passengers and six crew members, fire officials said.

"It was a very, very smooth landing. The pilot did an outstanding job," said fire Battalion Chief Lou Roupoli. "There was a big hallelujah and a lot of clapping on that aircraft."

National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident, NTSB spokesman Paul Schlamm said.

JetBlue flight 292 had left Bob Hope Airport in Burbank at 3:17 p.m. for New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, said JetBlue spokesman Bryan Baldwin.

The Airbus A320 first circled the Long Beach Airport, about 30 miles south of Burbank, then was cleared to land at Los Angeles International Airport. It stayed aloft to burn off fuel and lighten its weight, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Donn Walker.

Passenger Zachary Mascoon said he had tried at one point to call his family, but his cell phone call wouldn't go through.

"I wanted to call my dad to tell him I'm alive so far," the 27-year-old musician said.

Mascoon praised the flight crew's professionalism and how calmly they handled the emergency.

The plane landed at 6:19 p.m. Some passengers shook hands with emergency workers as they walked off the plane. Others talked on their cell phones and waved to cameras. One firefighter carrying a boy across the tarmac put his helmet on the child's head.

JetBlue, based in Forest Hills, N.Y., is a five-year-old low-fare airline with 286 flights a day and destinations in 13 states and the Caribbean. It operates a fleet of 81 A320s.

Amen Brother Bob, there were many praying for those people on that jet. God is merciful.

You are so right that this landing was truly as answer to prayer.  I hope that God gets the full glory for this one.  I watched it here too.

I was praying so hard I was crying as I watched it land on live TV.

Prayer is a powerful thing.

Covering your tracks is futile; God knows where you're going and where you've been.
