A Bek Air pilot was forced to make an emergency landing without the use of his aircraft’s front wheels at Astana International Airport on Sunday after a malfunction in the plane’s front landing gear.

The aircraft can be seen with its nose crashed into the ground, as emergency services and passengers stand in the middle of the runway shortly after the aircraft was evacuated. Buses were dispatched to transport the passengers to the terminal building. The plane was flying from Kyzylorda to Astana, where it made an emergency landing 45 minutes later than scheduled due to the landing gear malfunction. Several flights have been delayed at Astana International Airport due to the incident. No injuries have been reported as of yet.
