    What is the story for those of us who don't like to click on strange links from strangers?

    A Rock Center story about the landing.

    I generally don't fear NBC News links, from silver members.

    Too bad LOT has been counting on the Dreamliners to replace this bird. They're down to 4 767's in the fleet.

    Since the NBC News player kept crashing my iPad Safari, I found this YouTube video:

    LOT 767 from EWR to WAW can't lower landing gear, makes belly landing. Everyone survives. This was at the end of 2011. The Youtube video I posted above shows the actual landing, the NBC story is about 15 mins of stuff around it. The cause of the landing gear problem is apparently still unknown.

    Note to future fellow travelers: if you are in front of me during an emergency and have your cellphone out to take pictures or videos, expect to be "grounded". :mad:
