LONDON — A British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner was getting ready to take off. But while the plane was stationary, the front nose gear collapsed.
Officials have not said what caused the gear to break, leaving the front of the plane on the ground, Express reported.
British Airways said there were no passengers on board since the flight was a freight service but did confirm that the plane did suffer damage.
The aircraft is eight years old and has 154 economy, 25 premium economy and 35 business class seats. But instead of carrying people, the plane has been flying cargo due to coronavirus pandemic travel restrictions, Independent reported.
British Airways is investigating, The Sun reported.
