Myanmar passenger jet lands safely after landing gear fails

WATCH Myanmar Passenger Plane Make Safe Belly Landing Despite Nose Wheel Failure

Myanmar National Airlines is now sending engineers to Mandalay to check on the aircraft, Mr Ye Htut Aung said, adding that all jets get a daily flight check.

Airport spokesman Kyaw San said the pilot informed the control tower before landing that he was unable to pull down the nose wheels.

However, no one was injured in the accident.

Heart in mouth, bystanders were able to film the miraculous emergency landing which was safely - if not gracefully - performed.

Myanmar Airlines Flight 103 was headed from Yangon to Mandalay when the pilot discovered the problem.

An unverified landing video that spread on social media shows the Embraer 190 touching down on its rear wheels before traveling some distance along the runway on its nose, kicking up smoke.

A pilot has been hailed a hero after pulling off an emergency landing with no front wheels.

The airline confirmed that there were no injuries from the incident and the pilot carefully landed the plane onto the runway.

According to the reports, Captain Myat Moe Aung circled the airport twice before conducting the emergency landing to allow air traffic controllers to determine if the landing gear was down.

He reportedly followed all emergency procedures after the front landing gear failed to deploy as the aircraft approached the runway. Passengers scrambled to evacuate as instructions were given over the speaker system.

On Wednesday, a Biman Bangladesh Airlines plane skidded off the runway when it landed in bad weather at Yangon's worldwide airport, injuring at least 17 people.
