Nigerian Air Peace Boeing 737’s landing gear collapses on emergency landing

A Nigerian Air Peace Boeing 737 has nearly crashed after its nose landing gear snapped during a hard landing north of Lagos, where it was diverted after running into turbulence.

On its way back from Port Harcourt in Rivers State, the passenger jet ran into turbulence and reportedly experienced some technical trouble that forced it to request an emergency landing at the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos.

The plane’s nose wheel collapsed as the plane touched the ground during a hard landing.

Nigeria’s Airspace Management Agency has launched an investigation, confirming that the gear tire basically “sheared off” in the incident.
