Hopkinsville Resident Aboard Plane With Landing Gear Failure



Hopkinsville resident Kevin Clayton was among those aboard a Southwest Airlines plane that suffered a landing gear malfunction upon landing Monday in New York. According to cnn.com, a total of eleven people suffered what were termed minor injuries when the nose gear of the plane collapsed when it landed at LaGuardia Airport. The report goes on to say that the injured included six passengers and five crew members. The nose of the plane came to rest on the tarmac after it came to a stop. Passengers used the emergency slides to then evacuate the plane.

According to Clayton's Facebook page, he was among the 150 people who were aboard Southwest Flight 345, which originated in Nashville. There was no indication on the Facebook page that Clayton was among the six injured passengers.

The cnn.com report says LaGuardia was closed to arriving flights as emergency vehicles surrounded the disabled jet. The airport was back open for arrivals and departures by 7pm Monday evening. Initially, the FAA said the crew reported a possible nose gear problem before landing, but later amended that to say that after it reviewed air controller tapes, no issues were noted ahead of the plane landing in New York.
