Monday, AVweb posted images that showed what happened to key parts of the Airbus A320 that landed last month at LAX with its nosegear twisted 90-degrees from center. Our link may have taken some readers, however, to images showing the aftermath of an earlier twisted-nosegear-landing incident, which also involved a JetBlue Airbus ... one that landed at JFK in 2002. To relieve confusion and enlighten inquiring minds, AVweb now has both sets of photos available for your consideration. The more recent images show damage resulting from a JetBlue Airbus' confrontation with an L.A. runway -- they are available, here. The older set of images, showing damage done in 2002 by a New York runway are available, here.
