FOR SALE - Jason Lindquist
Idle ramblings of an idle mind
One Douglas McDonnell-Douglas Boeing MD-83, as-is, minor scratches on lower nose. Buyer picks up, American Airlines hangar, Chicago-O'Hare International (KORD).

WGN-TV video of landing, ORD runway 14R. Of course they didn't stop operations while/after this happened. It would've disrupted the entire national air system. But I imagine that United 767 or 777 that lands on 9R at the end of the video was warned he might have to go around, depending on what happened to the inbound traffic from his left. 14R is O'Hare's longest runway, at 13,000', and is the logical place to bring down a crippled aircraft, particularly if the winds were still from the southeast as they were six hours later when I read about it.
