2016-12-04 Skywest Embraer E-175 nosegear collapse San Antonio

Narrative

The aircraft sustained damage when its nosegear collapsed on landing at San Antonio Airport following a diverted landing from Monterrey, Mexico. All on board escaped without serious injuries.

Skywest Airlines Flight SKW 494J / UA 5588 was on final approach to runway 29 at Monterrey Airport (MEX) when the pilots apparently received indication of an unsafe nosegear condition and discontinued the approach.
After entering a holding at 7,000 ft east of the airport, the the aircraft climbed on a northbound heading back to US airspace. A diversion to San Antonio,TX was envisaged where a low fly-by was made on runway 04 probably to allow a visual gear inspection from the ground.
About 30 minutes later, the aircraft carried out an emergency landing on runway 04 with its nosegear extended, 2 h 35 minutes after take-off in Houston.

During landing rollout, the nosegear suddenly gave way and the nose dropped to the ground causing unknown structural damage before the aircraft came to a safe standstill on the runway. An emergency evacuation was started via aft doors (left + right chutes deployed)  There were no reports about any serious injury.

Narrative

During cruiseflight, the aircraft experienced a catastrophic failure of its left engine. The pilots managed to make an emergency landing at Pensacola, FL.

Southwest Flight WN 3472 took off from New Orleans Intl Airport (MSY, KMSY) at 09:10L on runway 01 and made a normal climb-out to its assigned en-route altitude. While the 737 was climbing through 31.000 ft, heading east over the Gulf of mexico, approximately seven miles south of the western tip of Horn Island, a catastrophic failure of the foreward casing of the left engine (model: CFM-56-7B24) took place. 

About 12 minutes after departure, the air-inlet cowl detached, broke away and plummeted into the sea.

The pilots immedately dicontinued their climb and initiated an emergency descend.

There is indication that oxygen masks were deployed to passengers and crewmembers. 

The flight was given vectors for an emergency landing at Pensacola Airport, FL where the 737 touched down safely on runway 17 about 20 minutes later. However, post-flight inspection revealed damage to the wing section close to the engine pylon and debris impact damage to the aft fuselage.
