    If anyone is near a TV, Jet Blue is circling LAX ready to make an emergency landing. The front landing gear wheels are at a 90 degree angle. They've been flying in a circle to burn-off fuel:

    It's being carried live on CNN, MSNBC, and the local Los Angeles stations.

    Let's pray for them...

    Amazing. That's a real testament to those pilots and the flight crew who I know were doing a good job with the passengers.

    I'm glad they made it down safely, pilot did a good job

    But really, did it warrant nearly three hours of news commentary?

    I dunno, I don't understand NASCAR, so if watching cars go in circles for three hours doesn't do it to me, neither is watching a plane circle over the Pacific Ocean.

    I wonder if they got to watch it on the plane??

    Having been in a somewhat similar situation (with a lot less press coverage), I can assure you that it was very quiet on that plane. You know how you never pay attention to the pre-flight instructions from the flight attendants? Well I can guarantee those people were hanging on every word they were told for those three hours.

    Msnbc website article said it was a good possibility passengers were watching on the tvs on the backs of the seats
