Nay Pyi Taw, May 14
Passenger airplane XY-AGQ Embraer 190 with flight No (UB-103) from Myanmar National Airlines carrying seven crew members and 82 passengers made an emergency landing as the nose landing gear did not work while flying from Yangon to Mandalay on 12 May morning. Captain U Myat Moe Aung could make a calm decision to land the plane safely by using the two main landing gears as the nose landing gear could not fall.
The plane landed safely without casualties and with little damage thanks to the correct decision and leadership of the captain and crew. On behalf of the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services, Yangon Region Command Commander Maj-Gen Thet Pon presented a certificate of honour sent by the Commander-in-Chief to Captain U Myat Moe Aung and his crew for their efforts to protect the passengers and prevent loss and damage to the plane at the head office of MNA in Kyauktada Township, Yangon, this afternoon.
