The aircraft suffered a nose wheel tyre burst which led to damage to the nose wheel assembly  during the landing procedure.

As a result, the aircraft came to a stop on the runway and was effectively disabled. Photographs taken on the scene show the aircraft at rest on the damaged nose landing gear strut.
