Myanmar National Airlines issued this statement and photo:
On May 12, 2019 at 0715 AM, flight UB103 from Yangon (RGN) to Mandalay (MDL), with Embraer 190 XY-AGQ was flown by Captain Myat Moe Aung, FO Myo Thiha Aung, FO Kaung Set Lwin, Purser Cherry Myint and 3 cabin crew.
The Captain made a RNAV approach to runway 17 at MDL, but when the landing gear was activated by EICAS message, it turned out the nose landing gear was malfunctioning and couldn’t be activated.
The Captain then activated the emergency landing gear down procedure, but it was still not working. He did two flight pass-by flights in front of ATC to check whether the nose landing gear was down or not.
Then the Captain followed emergency procedures and did the fuel burn out to reduce the landing weight.
At 0909 AM, flight UB103 RGN-MDL, Embraer 190 XY-AGQ flown by Captain Myat Moe Aung, FO Myo Thiha Aung, FO Kaung Set Lwin, Purser Cherry Myint and 3 cabin crew safely landed at Mandalay airport with no casualties and no injuries onboard. The passengers were evacuated with proper emergency evacuations by the cabin crew as well.
Myanmar National Airlines would like to express our deepest appreciation to all the passengers onboard and our crews.
We will continue to strive to keep all UB flights on higher safety standards and to offer safe journeys to our passengers.
