It will be interesting to read how this all came about. The aircraft looks bad. I suspect it will be written off.

Good that there were no injuries. Newark is still closed. That will put a big crimp in NYC area operations.

Whole aircraft written off over a blown tire? Guess I'm not seeing the damage in the photo, but I had to read a different article since Washington Post won't let me read their news garbage unless I pay for it.

Though even with even a small amount of damage I could the plane being written off, given that the 757-200 in question is probably a couple decades old and nearing retirement anyway.

The pictures show some nasty buckling around the nose gear.

Said it bounced ? Mi guess is the pilot , and maybe the co-pilot are in for some rough times ?

Also guessing the insurance is going to compare the cost of repairs vs. value of a 21 year old plane ?

Thankfully every one came out alive .

My buddy works at United Newark, says main gear on wing is cambered in, and the nose is totally crunched. It may actually be a complete loss.

Pilots who I have known told me years ago that Navy pilots when the leave the Navy and go on to flying commercial tend to blow tires given they are so trained to land on a carrier.

That is complete and utter hogwash.

A non-navy pilot told you that, and it’s one of the dumbest things I’ve heard.

Navy landings take extreme precision. That precision results in consistent, good landings in commercial operations. Navy pilot training washes out poor performers.

Worst landing I have ever seen in airline operations was from a civilian pilot. They may be used to flaring, but precision was never drilled into them. Poor performers continue on, as standards are not as rigorous, and civilian landings are monitored and scrutinized by LSOs.

I’ve got folding money that says this was NOT a Navy pilot.

Beyond that, I can’t comment.

Can’t confirm or deny any of that.

But I expect that airplane will be written off.

That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. The pilots who told you just that have clearly no idea what it takes to become a Navy pilot.
