Burmese pilot lands plane on rear wheels after landing gear jams

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

Aeromexico flight 2431 was departing from Durango, Mexico on July 31, 2018 when it crashed.

When you consider what we saw last week, with 41 people killed in a tragic accident at Moscow Airport, this really is a best-case scenario.

When a flock of birds knocked out both engines of a US Airways jet on January 15, 2009, Captain Sully Sullenberger managed to put the plane down in the ice-cold waters of the Hudson River off Manhattan Island in NY.

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

The Myanmar National Airlines plane skidded down the runway at Mandalay airport before grinding to a stop. Luckily, everyone walked away. "After circling nearly two times, the captain said they were going to make an emergency landing", he said. The captain successfully landed the airplane in the water and everyone survived.

A pilot has been hailed a hero after pulling off an emergency landing with no front wheels.

Ground staff watched on alarmed as the Embraer 190 had been circling the airport with only two set of landing gear deployed. He followed emergency procedures and burned excess fuel to reduce the aircraft's weight, the airline 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. Passengers scrambled to evacuate as instructions were given over the speaker system.

The airliner, Embraer 190, en route from Yangon to Mandalay, the second largest city in the central part of country, met with the accident while landing at the Tada U global airport at about 9 a.m. local time.
