London: A Flybe passenger plane has been forced to make a crash landing after its nose gear broke after taking off at Belfast airport.

The flight to Inverness carrying 52 people set off shortly after 11am, but the pilot quickly noticed a problem with the nose gear.

According to flight tracking website Airlive.net, the plane spent two hours circling at 3,800ft to burn off fuel before making the emergency landing.

A Flybe spokesperson told The Independent: “Flybe can confirm that there has been an incident involving one of our Bombardier Q-400 aircraft, flight no BE331 which landed with no nose gear in place.

“The aircraft departed from Belfast City at 1107 local time bound for Inverness. The incident occurred at Belfast International Airport at approximately 1330 local time.

“There are 52 passengers on board and four crew members. Our primary concern is for the welfare of the passengers and crew.”
