A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) jet made a seemingly normal landing at Muscat International Airport (Oman) today…until the left side landing gear collapsed.
PIA Flight 259 was a Boeing 737-300 jet with a serial number of AP-BEH.
“All the 108 passengers and crew are safe,” Bashiruddin Khan, PIA country Manager in Muscat, told Gulf News.
The jet has suffered major damage to the landing gear, wing and the engine.
The flight was inbound from Sialkot (Pakistan).
There has been no statement from the airline and the cause it not yet known.
PIA had to ground 16 jets in January for lack of spare parts.
