I've just been shown a picture of an Iran Air 747SP on the runway in Beijing with the nose gear not extended, people are boarding buses and the aircraft has fire engines around it.

Do you know when this happened? I've had a quick search in the forum under Iran and Beijing but found nothing.

Thanks, N754pr!!, I had no idea where to get a picture of the incident. And as some people have said. It seems more and more interesting pictures are appearing first on other sites.

Regards, AR385

Hopefully the SP will be repaired and be back in service soon. If not possible, F-GTOM is still avaiable. The SP´s must not die !!!!!!

Save the 747 SP !!

Oh my god I didn't know this has happened. It's very sad! Old Homa is loosing one of her children.

p.s. Homa is the name of the bird we see on Iran Air tails. Its the bird of fortune in Persian legends.

I guess this one is gone, sadly. Boeing won't send Tech Support to Beijing for this bird. It's hard to say from the pics, if the a/c's structure has been severely damaged. If it is a write-off, it's a heavy blow for IranAir, as their fleet is getting older, but utlisation of the planes is on the rise. They have been trying to get new Airbus widebodies for years, but there was no way found yet to work around the US-sanctions.

But let's hope for the best, maybe ARMCO can fix the damages on side at BJS.

A shame to see this happen - the more when it's such a rare bird as the SP's are nowadays.

I wonder if it's just me, or is it typical that the first pic in reply #6 features someone on a bike?

Just read on Airwise, that it was an emergency landing.

apparently it reported engine trouble shortly after take-off from Beifing en route to Tokyo and the nose gear failed to extend.

Good thing was that no one was injured

Srilankan_340,

Where is Beifing located, sounds like an interesting place. Is Iran Air the only airline that flies to the airport???  Big thumbs up  Wink/being sarcastic

Infact this is a story of an amazing landing by the Captain Masoud Ghodousti, it was reported on Iranian TV that the landing was undertaken so beautifully by the pilot that passengers were hardly aware of any sort of major diffuclty with the landing gear right until the very most minimal speeds at which the nose touched the ground during landing.

This is reflected by the pictures on the web and also the claim by Iran Air officials that the damage to the aircraft seems to be so low that they even anticipate the aircraft to be in the air in a few days. If this is the case this is truly amazing !

The only reason Iran Air is still able to cover the destinations it does today is because of the very pilots and engineers it has and the amazing love the Iranian people have for their national airline, which is almost unique in all of the world.

As for this baby boeing not flying again if iranian aviation engineers reputations are anything to go by this plane will be flying tommorow. Just consider this in the 80's when almost all the world most notably the US was against Iran in Saddams brutal attack on Iran, without any support from anyone in the world and without any spare parts or anything Iran was able to make what all the world thought were dead F-14's fly in 1985 to the suprise of just about everyone !!!

Thanks Amir

just saw this aircraft at NRT on the 5th of January.

what a beautiful aircraft indeed. If the story is true, and the aircraft has minimal damage... dam those IR pilots are really good. =)

but indeed, IR cant afford to loose an aircraft.

Nice to hear about another excellent job performed by the pilots under extreme conditions. And nice to hear the damage isn´t sunstantail obviously. I´ve seen this aircraft several times and it would indeed be sad if I wouldn´t see it here again!
