North Carolina Flight has Rough Landing at Florida Airport

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — An American Airlines flight from North Carolina had a rough landing at a Florida airport.

Airline spokesman Ross Feinstein says Flight 2043 experienced a mechanical issue with its landing gear upon landing late Thursday at Palm Beach International Airport.

Feinstein says the Airbus A319 landed safely but had to be towed off the tarmac.

Brad Heisle of Boynton Beach tells WPTV (http://bit.ly/29ahJ6E) he heard a loud boom and the plane “started shaking like crazy” when it landed.

The flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, carried 118 passengers and six crew members. Feinstein says no injuries were reported and the passengers were bused to the airport from the tarmac.

Feinstein says the airline took the aircraft out of service and canceled a 6 a.m. flight Friday from West Palm Beach to Philadelphia.
