Light plane suffers nose wheel failure
Two crew aboard a twin-engined aircraft were unhurt when the nosewheel collapsed during landing in Australia.
Local media said the pilot and co-pilot reported to air traffic control at Toowoomba airport in Queensland their nosewheel had not deployed properly. They carried out a fly-past which allowed observers on the ground to confirm the undercarriage was faulty.
The Beechcraft Baron 58 touched down slowly and the plane slid along the runway on itsnose.
The incident will be investigated but local media said the pilot had heard a loud clunk when he was retracting the undercarriage shortly after take off.
