Boeing 737 Max 8 skids off runway as gear collapses after landing in Houston
By Arsenio Toledo // Mar 11, 2024

A United Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 suffered a catastrophic gear collapse after landing in Houston, Texas.

The United Airlines Flight 2477 was carrying 160 passengers and six crew members. At about 8 a.m. on Friday, March 8, it was landing at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in Houston when it "left the pavement and entered the grass" while exiting the runway to the gate, according to airport officials in an interview.

Thankfully, none of the passengers and crew were injured. They left the plane safely and were bused to the terminal. The plane had departed from Memphis, Tennessee.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have vowed to investigate the incident. United Airlines said it is in the process of moving the aircraft from the taxiway and has vowed to cooperate with the NTSB, the FAA and Boeing "to understand what happened."

The Boeing 737 Max 8 was reportedly built just eight years ago and has been in service with United Airlines for less than a year.

Boeing planes in hot water following string of accidents

UA 2477's accident is the fifth incident in two weeks involving a United Airlines Boeing airplane.

A day before on Thursday, March 7, a United Airlines Boeing 777-200 took off from San Francisco on a flight to Osaka, Japan. Almost immediately after takeoff, the flight lost a tire – one of six on the left side of the plane's main landing gear assembly.

The tire fell into the San Francisco International Airport's (SFO) staff parking lot, where it hit a car, broke the rear window and then tore through a fence, after which it rolled to a halt.

The 777-200 headed to Osaka had 249 people on board. It immediately diverted to Los Angeles International Airport and landed without incident. United Airlines said it "quickly arranged" for a new airplane to bring the passengers to Osaka, and by Thursday evening those passengers were already on their way to Japan.

"We're grateful to our pilots and flight attendants for their professionalism in managing this situation. We're also grateful to our teams on the ground who were waiting with a tug to move the aircraft soon after it landed and to our teams in the airport who assisted customers upon their arrival," said United Airlines in a statement. "We will work with customers as well as with the owners of the damaged vehicles in SFO to ensure their needs are addressed."

Earlier that week, a United Airlines Boeing 737-900 flight taking off from IAH bound for Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers had to make an emergency landing after one of its engines began belching flames between 10 to 20 minutes after takeoff.

Media outlets reported that the incident was caused by a compressor stall, which occurs when there is a disruption of airflow in the engine prompting it to backfire. The engine itself was not on fire. The backfire was allegedly caused by the engine ingesting plastic bubble wrap that had been left on the airfield before departure, according to a statement by United Airlines.

At least two more incidents were reported within days of the 737-900 accident. On Monday, March 4, a United Airlines Boeing 757-300 flight en route to SFO from Honolulu encountered an engine failure over the Pacific Ocean before landing safely at the airport.

The FAA reported that it was also investigating a United Airlines Boeing 737 flight from Pensacola International Airport in the Florida Panhandle that reported a gear issue. It landed safely in Chicago.
