A Peruvian Boeing 737-500, registration OB-2041-P performing flight P9-331 from Cuzco (Peru) to La Paz (Bolivia) with 122 passengers and 5 crew, suffered the collapse of both main gear struts while landing on La Paz's Airport El Alto (Bolivia) runway 10 at about 10:22L (14:22Z). The aircraft came to a stop on the center line of the runway resting on nose gear, both engines and the aft belly of the fuselage. The passengers disembarked onto the runway via mobile stairs. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage.

Glad to hear everyone is safe, sympathies for those whose travel plans were disrupted by the delays.

On a side note, would this flight hold some kind of record for least amount of time or distance needed to achieve cruising altitude on both ends? With Cuzco at 10,860 feet/3360 meters ASL and La Paz at 13,325 feet/4081 meters ASL, that's a heck of a head start on both ends!

I wonder if the incidend was because the aircraft is 28 years old or because of the bumpy runway.

Boeing did not inform airlines about the Landing Gear Automatic Retraction System (LGARS). FAA issued an urgent airworthiness directive to all airline for more pilot training. Richard Aboulafia, Vice-President, Analyst and the only employee at Teal Group, said that the pilots failed to steer the plane as they should. ALPA asks regulators to address the safety concerns. The NTSB did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Sir Tim Clark of Emirates Airlines said the airline is pushing Airbus to develop A380neo which, according to New York Times, was developed at the request of Stephen Udvar-Hazi.

Perhaps landing at 13000 ft pressure altitude is not so straight forward as it may seem . . .

Perhaps, but Bolivian airlines such as LAB and now BoA have a pretty outstanding safety record operating from these airports that would white knuckle many a pilot elsewhere.
