The Embraer ERJ-190AR operated by JetBlue as flight 29 from Washington, DC, USA, experienced an inflight landing gear anomaly and subsequent landing with the nose gear retracted on runway 14 at Lynden Pindling International Airport (MYNN), Nassau.
After selecting the gear down, the pilots noticed that the nose landing gear was not fully extended and performed a go-around. Numerous attempts were made to lower the gear as per emergency checklist. The decision was then made by the flight crew to land the aircraft in the configuration that it was jammed in. The aircraft slid down runway 14 coming to rest on the center line near intersection Bravo. The nearby awaiting fire trucks foamed the aircraft and its underbelly to prevent any post-crash fire.

Probable Cause:

The Air Accident Investigation Department has determined the probable cause of this accident to be system component failure or malfunction within the nose landing gear operating system. Analysis conducted uncovered that the nose gear was not centered during its transit to the down position, causing the gear to become jammed and never fully extended.
