In spite of a technical problem the pilot was able to bring the plane to a safe if dramatic stop, along with the 89 passengers on board.
On August 2, 2005, an Air France Airbus A340 with 297 passengers and 12 crew members crashed as it was landing at Toronto's Pearson International Aiport in Canada during a heavy rainstorm.
Airport spokesman Kyaw San said the pilot informed the control tower before landing that he was unable to pull down the nose wheels. No one on the plane was injured.
Heart in mouth, bystanders were able to film the miraculous emergency landing which was safely - if not gracefully - performed.
Myanmar Airlines flight UB-103 - an Embraer-190 model - touched the ground at around 9am in Mandalay, a city popular among foreign tourists. "After circling nearly two times, the captain said they were going to make an emergency landing", he said.
The incident was the second aviation accident in Myanmar this week.
A pilot has been hailed a hero after pulling off an emergency landing with no front wheels.
"Then the Captain followed emergency procedures and did the fuel burn out to reduce the landing weight".
In the video that has gone viral on the social media, the plane can be seen landing at the runway with just the back wheels after the front wheels failed to deploy.
Earlier, Yangon International Airport closed after a Biman Bangladesh Airlines plane skidded off the runway.
