Southwest fires captain over LaGuardia nose-first landing
Southwest Airlines has fired the captain who was at the controls when the airplane landed nose-first at LaGuardia.
The action came as Dallas-based Southwest completed its probe of the accident, Linda Rutherford, an airline spokeswoman, said today by e-mail, without giving details. Southwest ordered the first officer to undergo more training, Rutherford said.
