A Jet Blue flight with 145 people aboard, which was flying from Burbank, Calif., to New York, will attempt to make a “soft landing” after it landing gear jammed. The Airbus 320 took off from Burbank Airport at 6:17 p.m. EDT, but turned around after its landing gear didn’t raise and was apparently twisted.
The jetliner attempted and failed to make an emergency landing at Long Beach airport after the problem was discovered. The plane, which is roughly the size of a Boeing 737, began dumping fuel into the Pacific Ocean in preparation for the emergency procedure.

9:21 PM ET Update: It’s landed safely. AWESOME!!
