Myanmar Pilot Lands Passenger Plane Without Front Wheels

Mandalay: A pilot in Myanmar is being hailed as a hero after the National Airlines plane has made an emergency landing at Mandalay International Airport using only its rear wheels after the front landing gear failed to deploy.

Myanmar National Airlines flight UB-103 – an Embraer-190 model – was carrying 82 passengers and a crew of seven when it touched the ground at about 9 am in Mandalay.

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

There were no casualties or injuries from the incident, the airline confirmed.
