Pics: Plane crash at Dublin Airport

All flights were grounded at Dublin Airport this morning after a small passenger plane landed on the main runway only for it's front wheel to buckle, causing the front of the plane to hit the tarmac.

A small Metroliner aircraft (an example of which is pictured above) crashed on the main runway of Dublin Airport this morning after the nosewheel of the aircraft became disabled after landing.

According to the Dublin Airport Twitter account, the plane only had two crew on board at the time, presumably the captain and his first officer, but thankfully, neither was seriously injured after the front wheel buckled causing the front of the plane to fall.

“The nose wheel has collapsed on the plane on landing at Dublin Airport,” a representative for the Dublin Airport Authority told Claire Murphy of the Evening Herald. “There is a wheel at the front of the plane when it lands. When this particular plane landed, it collapsed.”
