Damaged Plane Without Nosegear Crash-Lands in Belfast

It is said to have suffered a problem with its nose gear, noticed by the pilot after departure. The incident occurred at Belfast International Airport at approximately 1330 local time.

Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) tweeted: "Fire Crews were on standby at Belfast International Airport for an emergency landing".

"The aircraft departed from Belfast City at 1107 local time bound for Inverness".

The British Airline Pilots Association praised the pilots' skill in landing the aircraft.

The aircraft, a Bombardier Q-400 turboprob model, declared an emergency due to a technical issue shortly after taking off.

There were 52 passengers and 4 crew members aboard the damaged flight BE331, one of whom has been injured and taken to hospital.

Mr White added: "It became very obvious when it was on approach that the nose wheel was not down so we knew that it was going to be a hard landing".

She said: "The aircraft had an undercarriage problem".

Brian Strutton, general secretary of pilots' union BALPA, said the landing was a hard manoeuvre.

"The pilots in this case appear to have done a sterling job of bringing the aircraft back under those circumstances".

Mr White said fire crews were on the scene immediately to assist in evacuating the aircraft.

Images on social media showed the aircraft tipped forward onto its nose with firetrucks nearby.

Although full emergency procedures were deployed, the airport remains open, an airport spokeswoman said.

An investigation into the incident is underway.
