Airport closed due to Airline's wheel failure!

A Biman Bangladesh Airlines aircraft ended up falling on its nose during take-off in Dubai. Wheel failure is being blamed for the jet’s nose and engines hitting the ground.

The incident has resulted in BA and Virgin Atlantic flights being diverted to other airports and the closure of the whole terminal. Furthermore, other flights such as Emirates have been disrupted or cancelled.

Luckily only fourteen passengers were injured on the Dhaka bound plane.

The airline has said that the airport should be fully operational again at around 11am GMT time.
