Posted 19 November 2016 · Add Comment

An Emirates A380 aircraft was forced to land at Dubai without one landing gear set on November 9, reports Reuters.

The right-side under-wing landing gear did not deploy, and the crew were unable to deploy it using a ‘gravity drop’ method.

President Tim Clark said: “So, the aircraft landed on the main gar (and) nose gear; it is certified to do that.”

It is understood that the United Arab Emirates General Civil Aviation is investigating.
