This morning, I wrote about a trio of incidents that have occurred with United’s aircraft in the past month (all of these were Boeing planes, but unrelated). This morning a Boeing 737 MAX was landing at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) when it rolled into the grass after its landing gear collapsed.

United Airlines flight UA2477 made it safely from Memphis International Airport (MEM) and touched down.

The left rear gear collapsed either on touchdown or when the aircraft rolled off of the runway and into the grass. No injuries have been reported and the passengers were deplaned using stairs.


The flight arrived 24 minutes early and does not note the incident on United.com.

United has been having so many reported issues with its fleet lately. They are all different model types and having different issues. All are Boeing aircraft, but one has to wonder what is going on.

Anthony’s Take: Like the other recent incidents, there were no injuries and everyone arrived safely. I can only imagine how odd and slightly scary it is to roll off the runway.
