Myanmar pilot safely lands plane without front wheels

Passengers walk away from the plane after Myanmar National Airlines flight UB103 landed without a front wheel at Mandalay International Airport in Tada-u

The Myanmar National Airline (MNA) plane was landing at Mandalay International Airport on Sunday when its landing gear failed to deploy.

The plane touched down on its rear sets of wheels before the plane's nose tilted down scraping the runway and sending off a shower of sparks as it slowed to a stop.

An NDTV report quoted Ye Htut Aung, deputy director general of Myanmar's civil aviation department as saying that the pilot had tried repeatedly to drop the landing gear of the aircraft at the front of the plane, first through its computer system, then manually.

Despite nothing working for him, the captain managed to land safely by dumping fuel to reduce weight on landing and nobody on board sustained an injury - with the Daily Mail reporting there were a total of 89 people on the flight.

All 82 passengers and crew aboard Flight UB103 from Yangon are safe following the emergency landing.

On approach, the captain tried to deploy the front landing gear, but found out it was malfunctioning and could not be activated, the airline said in a statement.

The Boeing 377 Stratocruiser flying between Honolulu and San Francisco on October 16, 1956 had to make an emergency water landing when two of its engines failed.

Video apparently was shot by one of the passengers and posted online showed an urgent but orderly evacuation of the passengers and crew. Rescue team gather near a plane of Myanmar National Airline (MNA) after an accident at Mandalay International airport Sunday, May 12, 2019, in Mandalay, Myanmar. The pilot could land it skilfully.

Yesterday's incident comes just days after a Biman Bangladesh Airlines plane crash-landed and slid off a runway while landing in Yangon airport during a storm last Wednesday, leaving 11 passengers injured.
