DHL cargo A300 had a nose gear collapse on landing at BTS this morning. It had slipped off the runway.
There is a small video in this link as well.
One runway is closed the second one operational and airport is opened.

I can't believe there was no evacuation slide!

If it had not been a nose gear collasps, where the pilots supposed to jump out 2 stores to the ground?

Info from Avherald.com. Interesting in that the gear collapsed when the aircraft was already in low speed rollout.

Why blow the slide? They were close to the ground and it would have made it more difficult for them to get
out. Oh, and then there is the added expense of the slide being repacked.

either use the slide or , as at least many of the older cargo aircraft had, the escape rope.

Cargo crew normally in the flight deck use the window exits.....Unless there are folks in the supernumery area.

Looks like the roll out of the runway produced loads on the NLG that caused the shearpin to break.....
