I wonder if that will be reported as FOD ingestion to the engine lease company.

"The aircraft is damaged and will remain on the runway until the FAA investigates."

I think the problem is that it did NOT remain on the runway...

Looks like a survivable incident. Hope everyone is ok.

According to pax (Iím paraphrasing), the first approach was discontinued at some point followed by a second approach and Ďhardí landing with multiple bounces, finally coming to rest well off the rwy.

3/4sm -SN ,1500í ovc; RCAMs 3/3/3 from what Iíve read. Should have had an ILS available to them from what I can tell.

Nope they loaded just fine. You'd be amazed at what they can get flying again.

Oh I agree this could be repaired, but this is a 15 year old 145. Replacement of all 3 landing gear, fwd pressure bulkhead, est 5-7 foot gash, belly damage, flaps, possible wing spar damage.

If United really wanted a replacement 50 seater, there is a desert full of them.
