Passengers rush to evacuate plane following emergency landing

Passengers rush to evacuate plane following emergency landing

Video shot from inside the airport showed the plane landing on its back wheels, steadying and then eventually coming down on its nose - sending a shower of sparks down the runway.

Miraculous: The Embraer 190 which was landed safely without front landing gear.

The aircraft had departed from Yangon in the nation and was approaching Mandalay when the pilot got to know that he was unable to extend the front wheels of the plane. The passengers were evacuated with proper emergency evacuations by the cabin crew as well. "They tried hard twice by flying around twice and asked [people on the ground] to check whether the nose wheel dropped or not", he said....

Dr Win Mya said the pilot instructed them to follow the air hostesses' instructions and to use emergency exits once the plane landed.

"The pilot informed us shortly before landing that the plane's nose landing gear was not working", he said. "The pilot could land it skillfully", he said.

Ye Htut Aung, the deputy director general of Myanmar's civil aviation department, said the pilot tried repeatedly to deploy the front landing gear, but it would not function.

Smaller aircraft were able to use the runway after about two and a half hours and the runways were expected to be open for larger aircraft late in the afternoon.

Earlier, Yangon International Airport closed after a Biman Bangladesh Airlines plane skidded off the runway. The fuselage of the plane, a Bombardier Dash 8, was broken in at least two spots, along with the wings.

Myanmar's monsoon season has caused problems for commercial and military flights in the past.

And in 2015, an Air Bagan passenger plane veered off the runway amid bad weather and heavy rain.

No one were injured in the accident.
