Iranian 727 lands without front wheels

On October 18, 2011 – Captain Hooshang Shahbazi performed incredible landing of an Air Iran Boeing 727-200 at Tehran’s Maherabad Airport. The flight from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport to Tehran’s Imam Khomeini Airport was carrying 94 passengers and 19 crew. While approaching Tehran’s Imam Khomeini Airport, the crew did not receive a down and locked indication for the nose gear and aborted the approach. Following unsuccessful troubleshooting the crew decided to divert to Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport where a low approach confirmed the nose gear was not extended. The crew subsequently performed a landing without the nose gear on runway 29L and came to a stand still on both main gear and the nose of the aircraft. The aircraft was evacuated, no injuries occurred. Watch video below.
