A private airliner made an emergency crash landing at the Lahore airport earlier today, after its landing gear supposedly malfunctioned.
All 112 passengers on board the Shaheen Airlines NL-142 Karachi to Lahore flight remained unhurt and were evacuated safely.
Airport sources said the plane’s landing gear malfunctioned and its tire burst as it touched ground. Sources added that the Shaheen Airlines plane veered off the runway and landed on the grass.
Photos obtained showed the airplane on a grassy patch off the runway, and it appeared the main landing gear had malfunctioned as the plane sat on its belly.
The runway was closed for flights following the landing.
