A pilot in Myanmar is being hailed as a hero after landing an aircraft Sunday on just its rear wheels after the guest jet’s landing equipment stopped working.
In a declaration, the airline company stated pilot Captain Myat Moe Aung “followed emergency situation treatments and did the fuel stress out to minimize the landing weight,” prior to bringing the jet down onto its rear wheels, decreasing the nose thoroughly onto the runway on which it skidded for about 25 seconds prior to stopping.
There were no casualties or injuries from the event, the airline company verified.
Video from inside the aircraft revealed smoke increasing from below as guests rushed to disembark.
Following the event, emergency situation cars surrounded the aircraft as it rested on its nose on the tarmac.
” The pilot did an excellent task,” Win Khant, Myanmar’s transportation minister, informed Reuters.
Sunday’s emergency situation landing comes days after another aircraft in Myanmar skidded off the runway A minimum of 17 individuals were hurt on May 8 when the Biman Bangladesh Airlines jet bounced throughout a landing in heavy winds and half skidded half crashed off the runway, harming the aircraft and sending out guests flying about within.
