A Myanmar National Airlines Embraer E190 has performed a landing without its nose gear, leaving the aircraft in a disabled state on the runway.
The aircraft, registered XY-AGQ, was performing flight UB103 from Yangon to Mandalay when the pilots had to perform a landing with the nose gear retracted.
Gently bringing the aircraft down on runway 17 using an RNAV approach, the nose of the E190 began to sink before scraping along the ground for a rough deceleration. The following video shows the aircraft landing.
The landing came after the pilots performed two low passes for ground crew to report back if the gear was down or not as well as emergency gear extension procedures.
Upon landing, all 89 passengers and crew were evacuated, as seen in the footage below. No one was injured.
