On December 20, 2008, a Contiental Airlines Boeing 737 was attempting to take off from Denver International Airport.

The aircraft had departed from Yangon and was approaching Mandalay when the pilot was unable to extend the front landing gear.

The pilot was said to have tried to activate the jet's landing gears several times through the aircraft's computer system and then manually, but didn't receive a response.

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

After the pilot set the rear wheels on the ground, the plane's nose fell forward, scraping the runway and creating sparks before slowing down the aircraft to a stop.

A statement from the airline reveals that pilot Captain Myat Moe Aung followed emergency protocols and dumped fuel to reduce the landing weight.

However, no one was injured in the accident. "Smoke came out a little when we landed".

The Embraer jet skidded for roughly 25 seconds with its nose on the tarmac before coming to a halt.

The domestic flight made a scheduled but emergency landing on its rear landing wheels only.
