Very nice catch. I heard part of this on WCBS880AM today and they did credit LiveATC.net , which was nice.

Craft..."...craft is off the runway"...  cheesy  wink I think "air" was cut off...I think he meant to say "Aircraft is off the runway." After landing on runway 19, the aircraft "blew a tyre, but went left off the runway, stopped just off the paved surface with all gear north of the intersection with runway 10/28..." ...from the AvHerald article. Directly after that comment he comments again about runway 10 being operational.

Agreed - great job by ATC and the crew.  Seriously, how often does an airliner get no-gyro vectors?  Training pays off, on both the ATC end and the pilot end.

7000 foot runway (19) and 32k pounds fuel- blew tires on landing.  anyone know gross landing weight of the airbus A320? aircraft?  and regardless great decision to not worry about it.  Better a few tires or landing struts versus circling to dump fuel and losing everything (swissair 111).

Is it me or did the ABC video cut the transmissions into something totally not chronological.

Preliminary report from the NTSB: http://www3.ntsb.gov/Pressrel/2011/110407.html

Quote
...which returned to the airport on April 4, 2011, in New Orleans, shortly after take-off due to automated warnings of smoke in the equipment bay....

...After documenting the condition of the equipment in the electronics bay, investigators applied limited electrical power to various systems on the airplane. At this time, the preliminary examination has not revealed any signs of burning, indications of smoke or other anomalous system findings.

The NTSB operations group completed interviews of the flight crew yesterday. The crew indicated that, at about 4000 feet, the airplane's electronic centralized aircraft monitoring (ECAM) system provided an autothrottle-related message, then an avionics smoke warning message, accompanied by instructions to land. Despite receiving this message, neither crew member recalled smelling smoke or fumes during the flight.

False alarm?    huh
