The flight data and cockpit voice recorders of Southwest Airlines Flight 345 that crashed at LaGuardia airport on Monday are in the hands of federal investigators in Washington, DC today. There was no loss of life in the crash, but the damage was extensive, CNN's Rene Marsh reports.
The landing gear collapsed upward into the fuselage, damaging the electronics bay, which houses avionics and other equipment. Southwest says the Boeing 737 was inspected just last week. The airline added that it is working with both the NTSB and Boeing in a preliminary investigation.
150 people were on board the Boeing 737, nine of whom suffered non life threatening injuries.
This isn't the first time Southwest airlines has had problems with landing gear. In June 2007, a Southwest Boeing 737 had a nose-gear collapse in Oakland, California. No one was hurt.
