Myanmar National Airlines is sending engineers to Mandalay to check on the aircraft, Mr Ye Htut Aung said, adding all jets get a daily flight check.

A Myanmar pilot has harmlessly landed a plane without front wheels after the landing gear could not function.

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.

All passengers and crew made it safely off the plane. "There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage". The passengers were evacuated with proper emergency evacuations by the cabin crew as well.

All 89 people on board managed to walk away from the broken-down jet after Myanmar Airlines flight UB-103 was grounded at around 9am on Sunday in Mandalay.

The Boeing 377 Stratocruiser flying between Honolulu and San Francisco on October 16, 1956 had to make an emergency water landing when two of its engines failed.

Texas cop 'shoots unarmed pregnant woman' in shocking video
A police officer in Texas has allegedly shot and killed a woman who may have reached for his taser during an altercation. According to The Associated Press, police said that they will determine whether she was pregnant during the autopsy .

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

According to the reports, Captain Myat Moe Aung circled the airport twice before conducting the emergency landing to allow air traffic controllers to determine if the landing gear was down. An urgent but orderly evacuation of the passengers and crew followed.

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

A passenger plane has landed in Myanmar, also known as Burma, without its front wheels.

Footage shows the plane landing in impressively graceful fashion before its nose tips forwards and grinds along the ground, with the aircraft eventually coming to a halt further down the runway.
