Did a search but could not find this posted.
Earlier today, Saudi private airliner made an emergency landing at KHI
airport. Link below.
The article mentions problems with the landing gear and judging from the photo provided, it looks like the nose gear collapsed. The article also mentions that the plane was flying from UET
(Quetta, Pakistan) to TUU (Tabuk, Saudi Arabia).
What I find strange is that why would an aircraft having problems with its gear retracting would continue all the way to KHI
and not go back to UET
is approx. 320nm from KHI
Also, it is unclear from the picture which airline is involved. I believe it must be a charter as there are no scheduled direct flights between the two airports. The aircraft looks like an MD
-80 to me.
Anyone with more info please shed light on this. Which airline and aircraft type was involved. Who/What was it carrying?
