Pilot Pulls Off Emergency Landing Without Front Wheels

Pilot Pulls Off Emergency Landing Without Front Wheels”

The Myanmar Airlines pilot was forced to ground the plane in dramatic fashion in Mandalay, Myanmar, this (Sunday) morning after the landing equipment failed to deploy.

Flight UB103 touched down at Mandalay International Airport at 9:09 a.m. local time with all 82 passengers and seven crew members able to safely evacuate the plane after it scraped its nose down the runway and came to a ideal stop.

The pilot managed to land the plane on its nose, causing no injuries to the dozens of passengers and crew on board.

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

"Then the captain followed emergency procedures and did the fuel burn out to reduce the landing weight", it said.

The pilot of the Embraer 190 was praised for the landing, in which none of the 89 passengers was hurt.

A statement on the airline's Facebook page explained that the plane's EICAS - Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System - indicated a failure of the front landing gear to deploy. "After circling nearly two times, the captain said they were going to make an emergency landing", he said.

He then tried a backup emergency procedure to pull down the wheels without success.

The Embraer jet skidded for roughly 25 seconds with its nose on the tarmac before coming to a halt. The passengers were evacuated with proper emergency evacuations by the cabin crew as well.

Video apparently was shot by one of the passengers and posted online showed an urgent but orderly evacuation of the passengers and crew.

"So they had to land with the back wheels".

Sunday's incident came just four days after a Biman Bangladesh Airlines plane skidded off a runway while landing at Yangon airport in a storm, injuring 11 passengers.
