Plane Lands Hard in Colorado Carrying 12 No One HurtA 10-passenger flight from Denver International Airport to Telluride lost use of its landing gear, tilted to the left and damaged a wing and propeller at Telluride Regional Airport on Sunday afternoon. Great Lakes Aviation spokeswoman Monica Taylor-Lee said none of the passengers or crew members aboard Flight 7150 was injured. She said the crew was able to deploy the gear manually in flight, but it did not hold as the plane was decelerating on the landing. (www.denverpost.com) More...

Great job by the crew. It will be interesting to see what the NTSB comes up with on this one.
Telluride... Colorado's version of Lukla...
The pilot pulled off a remarkably good landing in very rough conditions. It was surprising that nobody was hurt.

"Great Lakes Airlines Landing Gear Fails". I guess your headline and info was weak or everybody was out having a good time. I later saw that but sometimes if your headline does not spark interest people will not respond. I didn't mean to steal your thunder but a lot of people know the Telluride airport and if you ever seen it you would know why that is the lead in and not "Great Lakes"
