A JetBlue airliner with its front landing gear stuck sideways landed safely Wednesday, balancing on its back wheels as it slowed on the runway at Los Angeles International Airport.

As the front wheels touched the runway, flames shot along the tarmac and the tires tore off, leaving the metal gear scraping the runway for the final few yards.

The pilots of Flight 292 had discovered the problem as they tried to retract the plane’s landing gear shortly after leaving Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport  bound for New York, said JetBlue spokesman Bryan Baldwin.
