Sedona AZ (October 19, 2010) - by Al Comello exclusive breaking news to the SedonaEye.com.
At the Sedona Arizona airport, a too fast approaching Net Jet bounced a hard landing (twice) but the plane was able to pull out and do a come-around for a safe landing. The jet’s first attempt at landing caused front tire and rim damage.
The Sedona Airport staff is providing maintenance coordination.
The initial SedonaEye.com report was filed on the scene within minutes of the Net Jet landings. The Sedona Times Publishing and SedonaEye.com (formerly SedonaTimes.com) production office is located in the Sedona Airport North Annex where the inbound Net Jet landing was observed and from which this on-the-scene report was immediately filed.
(Update: Sedona AZ - October 20 2010–The Sedona Arizona airport inbound Net Jet bounced three times, not twice, as evidenced by airport photography of the hard landing. Subsequent damage findings found the jet’s engine was compromised and maintenance is expected to take several days. The air flight’s two pilots status remains unconfirmed. The flight had one passenger on-board.)
