Bloomberg News is reporting that Southwest Airlines has fired the captain who was piloting the Boeing 737 that landed nose first at LaGuardia Airport in July.
The incident injured nine people and kept air traffic at a stand-still at the busy New York airport for several hours.
The pilot had been with Southwest for 13 years. The first officer on the plane was ordered to undergo more training.
"As a matter of policy we have not identified the pilots and we are not discussing the specifics," Southwest spokeswoman Linda Rutherford told Bloomberg. "We are also still in an active investigation with the NTSB."
