1989 GSO Emergency Landing

Greetings,

I was working in the media in August of 1989 when the Piedmont 737 made that incredible landing in Greensboro. One of the landing gear was jammed and I remember the pilot making several passes before finally touching down safely.

This was only days before the name change... Does anyone remember any details of what exactly happened? What was the result of the investigation? I can't recall.

Anyway... many thanks for letting me read all of your memories. Piedmont was, and in myopinion, will always BE the very best. The model of not only what a good airline should be... but what a good COMPANY should be.

All my best,
Chris

If you will email retired Capt. Larry Fuda at WingsRacing@aol.com he can fill you in on all the details as he was the Pilot in command.

As I recall there was a wheel chock that had been stored in the wheel well as the A/C was being towed and not removed later that cause the landing gear to become jammed.

Hey, Chris, good to hear form you and hope you are doing well. We miss your smiling face on TV around here. Our good buddy, Donnie Martin, in his post above provides the name of the captain to contact. Captain Fuda was also a racing fan and worked long and hard trying to convince USAir to sponsor a car - -but to no avail. One of many mistakes they made.

Thanks so much for all of the information!

I always wished I could've been a Piedmont Employee... but chose TV News instead! Still, however, have a wall in my home dedicated to this wonderful airline. I have always been a big fan.

Sorry to bring up a "bad memory"... this landing just always amazed me and I was puzzled about the outcome.

You should all be proud of what you created. Many in Winston-Salem, I fear, never ttruly understood what they lost.

Thanks again... and thanks for allowing me to barge into your "family".

Chris

Human Factor(s). Rubber Chock placed on the keel of the main wheel well (beside the Standby Hyd Pump) when the aircraft was moved from remote to the gate in DCA. Had the chock for a door stop and conversation piece in the GSO office for a year before I left USAir. Still have some amazing home videos shot from on top of the PI GSO hangar (now Timco) during the bump and go's.

PI Capt Fuda did an outstanding job of piloting that super guppy!

Chris, I'm also glad to hear from you. In my book, you've always been part of the Piedmont family as well as those of us who had the pleasure and honor to work for that great company.

Keep in touch.

Thanks Steve. I was working on a news crew that covered the story that day. That video is from WFMY TV Channel 2 (CBS). My station (WXII) did the entire newscast from PTI that night. It was quite a story... especially considering the merger that was taking place the next day or the day after.
