In spite of a technical problem the pilot was able to bring the plane to a safe if dramatic stop, along with the 89 passengers on board.

Rescue teams gather near damaged plane of Myanmar National Airline after an accident at Mandalay International airport.

The plane, an Embraer 190, had taken off from Yangon, Myanmar, about an hour flight south of Mandalay.

A plane was forced into an emergency - and miraculous - landing Sunday without any front wheels.

It was decided that the flight from Yangon to Mandalay should attempt an emergency landing, after dumping excess fuel to reduce aircraft weight and the amount of flammable material onboard.

A statement on the airline's Facebook page explained that the plane's EICAS - Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System - indicated a failure of the front landing gear to deploy.

Emergency vehicles came to attend to the plane as soon as it landed, but no-one was injured in the emergency manoeuvre.

"The pilot did a great job", said Win Khant, permanent secretary of transportation and telecommunication ministry, adding the incident was being investigated.

The incident involving the Myanmar Airlines flight UB-103 was the second one involving a malfunctioning plane in the country in less than a week. "The pilot could land it skillfully", he said.

Myanmar National Airlines have since sent engineers to the airport to check on the aircraft to establish the cause of the fault.

On August 2, 2005, an Air France Airbus A340 with 297 passengers and 12 crew members crashed as it was landing at Toronto's Pearson International Aiport in Canada during a heavy rainstorm.
