A flight from Addu, Gan flying school crash-landed earlier today while trying to land on Gan International Airport runway.
Sources say that while it landed, there was a foreign instructor along with a Maldivian student. In this tragic accident, luckily, no one was hurt.
Around 1600 today the accident occurred and yet no probable cause has been identified. Judging by the pictures of the accident, it is seen that something went wrong on the nose landing gear of the aircraft. Right after the accident occurred, emergency services at Gan International airport became active and are now working on the situation.
Asian Academy of Aeronautics has faced a similar accident in 2015 as well. And quite recently, last year, an engine familiar occurred and led an aircraft to be crash-landed as well. Mechanical failures and problems are quite common to these aircrafts.
