Late this afternoon a B737/800 operate by Ryanair as FR 9513 GRO-TSF has landed in TSF with the left nosewheel separated, likely after take off from GRO.

The landing happend without problem and only during the taxi some ramp agents saw that one nosewheel was missing.

On board 164 pax.

Interesting that there is apparantly no indication on the flight deck for a nosewheel failure! Well, these are the situations where we can see the importance of safety margins in aircraft design.

I'm happy to read that none of the passengers or crew got injured.

Were they able to repair it at TSF?

A similar incident happened last year again in Italy on a B737/400 EI-COJ operated by Air One on the CTA-FCO route. They were able to know about the missed nosewheel during the flight only because the captain on a Meridiana flight who took off after the AirOne flight saw the wheel in the middle of the runway.

A press release from the largest Italian newspaper (only in Italian):

Treviso: volo Ryanair perde ruota, tutti salvi
TREVISO - Tragedia sfiorata all'aeroporto di Treviso. Un volo Ryanair con 164 passeggeri a bordo e' atterrato questa sera senza la ruota sinistra del carrello anteriore. Non ci sono state conseguenze per i passeggeri e l'equipaggio, ne' per l'aeromobile, che copriva la linea Gerona-Treviso. L'assenza della ruota non e' stata notata dal pilota, che infatti non ha lanciato l'allarme, e ad accorgersene e' stato il personale di pista mentre il Boeing 737 entrava in parcheggio. (Agr)

That is bad, It could have caused havoc if the wheel was left on the runway.
Things like this should not be happening on any aircraft especially when Ryanairs fleet is so young.

Does anyone know which aircraft was involved?

Spotted this photo recently of a Varig MD-11 that lost both its centerline wheels soon after takeoff.
