Video from inside the plane showed smoke rising from underneath as passengers scrambled to disembark.

Flight UB-103 - an Embraer-190 model - was headed to Mandalay from Yangon when the pilot discovered the problem. The pilot managed to land the plane on its nose, causing no injuries to the dozens of passengers and crew on board.

Captain Myat Moe Aung burned excess fuel to reduce the craft's weight the airline said.

A military plane crashed into the Andaman Sea in 2017 with 122 people on board - one of the deadliest aviation accidents in the country's history - and the authorities attributed it to bad weather.

On approach, the captain tried to deploy the front landing gear, but found out it was malfunctioning and could not be activated, the airline said in a statement.
