The aircraft on emergency landing at Nassau after the nosegear failed to extend. All 95 on board remained unhurt.

On final approach JetBlue flight 29 to Nassau, the pilots received indication about a problem with the nosegear extension (no green light).

After a low-pass was performed to allow a visual inspection, it was found the nosegear were nearly fully up.

After touchdown on runway 14, the lose struck the asphalt surface after the pilots kept it in the air as long as possible.

After the jet came to a safe stop on runway centreline, the airport fire srvices quickly foamed the underside of the nose. There was no further damage.
