I noticed an aircraft inbound to EWR diverted to my home airport, KBDL. I found this bizarre because we usually only get diverted aircraft because of weather but eventually found out what happened.

Is that repairable? That is extensive damage to the nose gear and fuselage.

If it was up to me, I would discontinue all 757 flights to give it maybe a little upgrade or just completely retire the aircraft

I was literally biking past EWR around this time. I wonder if I was around when it happened. This is unusual as it wasn’t even bad conditions. I wonder if it’ll be salvageable
