NTSB – “Captain Responsible for Southwest Nose First Landing & Skid at LGA”

After more than two years, federal accident investigators have ruled that the July 22, 2013 737-700 nose first landing / skid at LGA was due to the captain attempting to take control too late into the landing approach. The NTSB said the captain took control from the co-pilot only 27 feet off the ground rather than choosing to circle the airport, in violation of Southwest procedures.
