Iranian Pilot Makes Peaceful Belly Landing with Jammed Front Wheels

31 August 2015 18:46



An airplane belonging to Iran’s Qeshm Air airliner was forced to make an emergency landing on its belly at Tehran’s international Mehrabad airport after the front wheels failed to lower.

The plane which had taken off without any passengers for check flight on Monday afternoon experienced technical problems, including malfunctioning, and was forced to land at the airport with its front wheels stuck to the body.

The skilled pilot managed to bring down the plane without any considerable damage or crew injuries.

Mehrabad’s public relations department confirmed landing of the plane with no functional front wheels, and said the runway of Mehrabad airport is open and the incident didn’t cause delay in other flights.
