Southwest flight crash lands at Laguardia

Salon executive Matt Sussberg sends us this picture from Laguardia Airport where eyewitnesses are reporting that a Southwest flight crash landed moments ago, apparently due to a problem with its front landing gear.

Passengers are reportedly coming down emergency chutes now. No word on injuries, more details to come.

Updated: 6:11 p.m.: CNN is reporting that the flight was from Nashville. It landed around 5:45 p.m. There are no reported injuries but passengers are still on board. Laguardia Airport is not “accepting planes.”

Updated: 6:15 p.m.: Southwest has not yet issued a statement on its homepage or via Twitter. The plane is a 737, according to numerous sources.

Christ, why did they have to close the airport? I don't care if there was a crash or if people dies. I want to get home. Jesus, it's such an inconvenience to me. I need to feel NYC again after a week of being bored in California.

R7, the flights from California to the New York area land at JFK and Newark, not at LaGuardia

Not very "E" for an EST post but I give you a 2/10

Is George Zimmerman on his way to help out with the rescue operation?

And why did it take the flight attendant sooooo long to start and evac....telling people to stay in their seats as the cabin filled with smoke...because SWA flight attendants are soooo busy telling jokes over the pa...they don't know their true role on the airplane.....SWA will use all it's power to sweep this incident under the rug just like when it went off the runway in Chicago and killed a child in a car.....SWA lawyers tried to prove the kid had choked on a hot dog before the plane slammed into the car

Did any passengers bring their carry-ons down the chutes?

America is under attack. It's probably the muslims.

I guarantee that dumbass pilot hit the ground before the wheels were fully straight down, so the weight of the plane made it buckle.
