Comair B733 at Port Elizabeth on Jul 9th 2012, nose gear steering problem
Last Update: July 10, 2012 / 12:22:09 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported about 20 minutes prior to estimated landing the captain announced they had received a warning indication suggesting a possible nose gear steering problem. The problem was not serious, it might be possible however they needed to stop on the runway and to be towed to the apron. The aircraft was normally configured for landing with gear being deployed just upon initiating final descent, the flaps were normally extended to landing position, no unusual noises were heard and there were no apparent anomalies. The aircraft made an uneventful landing and taxied to the apron on its own power with the emergency vehicles trailing the aircraft until it reached the stand. The passenger saw the aircraft depart again about an hour later.
