Most value in 50 seaters are in the engines, and at least nr1 is toast on this one.

Correction it is a 145 XR. Not very many of those around and UAL is flying all of them, around 90 total. UAL wants to keep all the XRs flying.

Bounces are an indication of excess energy. Looking at where the nose gear ended up, probably tried to force it on.

This is the best reason to look for a regional with a flowthrough agreement.

Well....As long as they keep their jobs they still have a chance of making it to the majors via a flow. Otherwise this ďdingĒ will make it very difficult to go anywhere.
