An aircraft carrying more than 50 passengers was forced to make an emergency landing without its front wheel after the landing gear failed.

British airline Flybe said its aircraft on Board of which there were 52 passengers and four crew members, landed at the global airport of Belfast without the front of the chassis.

A massive emergency operation had swung into place involving police, fire and ambulance crews but the diverted flight from Belfast City Airport to Inverness landed safely shortly after 1pm on Friday, an airport spokesman said.

There were 52 passengers and four crew members on board. One person was taken to Antrim area hospital with a minor hand injury but was later discharged.

She said: "The aircraft had an undercarriage problem".

A Flybe Bombardier Q-400 passenger plane has crash-landed without a nosegear at the Belfast airport as it had suffered technical difficulties soon after takeoff.

The British Airline Pilots Association praised the pilots' skill in landing the aircraft.

The U.K. Air Accidents Investigation Branch said it was sending a team to Belfast to investigate the incident.

"All statements relating to this incident will be posted immediately".

A Flybe aircraft crash landed in Belfast today after its nose gear refused to drop. "No action required from NIFRS at the scene".
