Last week, a plane had to turn back after take-off because its engine was sticking out of the plane.
This was an LAX to Mexico City flight and the passengers had to be re-booked. No one was hurt.
I’ve never had landing gear break (thank goodness!) on take-off, but I have had the landing gear break upon landing.
It wasn’t as exciting as it sounds. We had to be manually towed in and it affected the people who needed the plane after us more than the people currently on the flight.
The landing just seemed extra bumpy but not too dangerous.
Have you ever been on a flight where the landing gear collapsed?
