Air Peace flight suffers hard touch down at Lagos

Posted 25 July 2019 · Add Comment

An Air Peace Boeing 737-300 flight from Port Harcourt to Lagos, Nigeria, suffered a hard touch down as it landed at Lagos today.

 

The aircraft, which had had 133 passengers and six crew onboard, suffered a hard touch down causing both nose wheels to separate from the nose gear strut.

The aircraft skidded to a halt on the runway on main wheels and the rest of the nose gear strut. There was one minor injury. The aircraft sustained substantial damage, as did the runway. 

The airline reported due to a sudden weather change the captain requested the longer international runway rather than the domestic runway. After landing safely while attempting to turn off the runway the nose gear developed a problem and partially collapsed. 

Nigeria's AIB have opened an investigation into the incident.
