Saudi Arabia: Airliner lands without nose-wheel.

(Jeddah)  151 very lucky passengers and 10 crew members of Saudi Arabian Airlines flight SV3818, must be thanking their luckystars after their flight from Medina headed for Dhaka Airport in Bangladesh was diverted to  King Abdul Aziz airport in Jeddah after suffering a malfunction with the front landing gear on Monday evening. After flying around burning off fuel for several hours, they landed with the nose wheel up. 52 passengers suffered minor injuries and another was left with fractures. Give that pilot a cigar.
