So just to clarify, it was just a sensor malfunction? It wasn’t an actual gear issue?

From what I could understand and read it was just a sensor issue but the pilots didn’t want to take the chance.

Weird considering the United Express E-175 that landed with a collapsed nose gear last week at the same airport

Hmmmm. Interesting. I used to live in San Antonio and flew out of San Antonio a lot. Cool

How is an emergency landing cool?

I didn’t mean it like that. Sorry.
