Airbus

AIRBUS….The LA Times reports that Airbus jets have had landing gear problems before:

The problems with JetBlue Flight 292 marked at least the seventh time that the front landing gear of an Airbus jet has locked at a 90-degree angle, forcing pilots to land commercial airliners under emergency conditions, according to federal records.

Cue wingnuts: the MSM is ignoring this problem because Airbus is a French company. If it had been a Boeing jet, the Blame America crowd would be all over it.
