DUBAI – Eighty-nine people were saved after a pilot of a Myanmar National Airlines plane was able to land the aircraft despite its front wheels failing to deploy.
Flight UB103 made an emergency landing at Mandalay International Airport on Sunday (May 12), using only its rear wheels after the front landing gear failed to deploy.
Sparks were seen on the tarmac after the aircraft skidded down the runway for about 25 seconds as the pilot slowly landed the plane on its nose.
Officials said no one was injured in the incident. The plane had departed from Yangon and was approaching Mandalay when the pilot noticed the defective gear.
The airline said that captain Myat Moe Aung flew the plane around the airport twice to burn excess fuel and to let air traffic controllers know about the broken landing gear. GAD/Expat Media
