Dublin Airport: Drama As Plane Tips On To Nose
The main runway at Dublin airport has been closed after a dramatic crash involving a small cargo plane.
The front wheel of the Bin Air aircraft buckled on landing at around 9am, causing it to tip over onto its nose.
Neither the pilot nor co-pilot - the only crew - were hurt, an airport spokeswoman said.
"It was a small aircraft, a cargo plane," she said.
"The nose wheel collapsed when the aircraft landed which meant the aircraft had disabled the main runway."
The plane involved, a Metroliner, could be seen on the side of the runway with its nose touching the tarmac.
A spokesman has confirmed the airport is now fully operational.
