A JetBlue ERJ-190, registration N273JB, performing flight B6-29 on 25/03/2016 between Washington and Nassau with 95 passengers and crew onboard, was on approach to Nassau when the crew did not receive an indication that the nose gear was down and locked.
The crew performed a low pass over the airport to get confirmation and the ground observes reported the nose gear was up and stuck in the wheel well. The crew could not get the gear to unlock and they got prepared for a nose gear up landing.

The aircraft landed on runway 14, the crew kept the nose up as long as possible, then lowered it gently on the ground and came safely to a stop.

Emergency services foamed the aircraft and passengers disembarked on the runway and were taken to the terminal by bus.
