Southwest Airlines has fired the captain of the plane that landed hard at LaGuardia Airport in July, injuring a number of passengers.
The airline said it made the decision after completing an internal investigation of the incident.
During the flight, the National Transportation Safety Board said that the captain took control from the first officer just 400 feet from the ground.
The plane landed nose-first, and the front landing gear collapsed.
It was only the captain's second time landing at the airport, and his first time flying with the co-pilot.
No mechanical problems were found with the plane.
The airline said that the first officer is also being required to undergo additional training.
