Default Skywest nose gear up landing ONT

Accident: Skywest CRJ2 at Ontario on May 23rd 2010, nose gear up landing

By Simon Hradecky, created Monday, May 24th 2010 07:59Z, last updated Monday, May 24th 2010 08:11Z

A Skywest Canadair CRJ-200, registration N925SW performing flight OO-6467 from San Francisco,CA to Ontario,CA (USA) with 24 passengers and 3 crew, was on approach to Ontario when the crew aborted the approach reporting an unsafe gear indication for the nose gear. The crew entered a holding to troubleshoot the problem, but was unable to lower the nose gear. A low approach to Ontario to have the tower inspect the landing gear showed, that the nose gear was up with the nose gear doors open. The crew declared emergency and performed a nose gear up landing on runway 26L about one hour after aborting the first approach. No injuries occured, the damage to the aircraft is unclear.

The airport closed both runways following the landing, runway 26R was re-opened about 20 minutes after landing.

The FAA reported, that the airplane landed with the nose gear restricted. An investigation has been initiated.

Your gear wouldn't come down, you must be on drugs.

I wonder if they whiz quiz the last mechanic to wrench on it...

maybe the FO didn't do a good enough preflight?

Over the past couple of years, this is the third CRJ at Skywest that I'm aware of to have this problem. Nice work by the crew. I wonder what's causing this?

Edit: By the way... I believe ASA had one of these exact situations, also.
