After the nose landing gear failed to deploy, a Delta Air Lines pilot made a miraculous emergency landing.

On June 28, 2023, at 7:25 a.m. local time, the Delta flight departed from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).

The crew became aware of a “nose gear unsafe” indication while the aircraft was about to land at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT).

In a statement by Delta, the alert forced the pilot to initiate a “missed approach procedure” to allow more time to investigate the indication.

The pilot successfully executed an emergency landing at 8:58 am, bringing the aircraft and 96 passengers back to the ground safely.

Officials at CLT closed runway 18R/36L after the incident.

“I want to extend my sincere thanks to the crew of Delta flight 1092 who took such great care of our customers today after the aircraft’s nose gear failed to deploy. Our crews train extensively for situations like this and I’m proud of their professionalism in landing the aircraft safely,” CEO at Delta Air Lines, Ed Bastian, said.

Bastian added: “To our customers onboard, please know that your safety is our No. 1 priority – always. We have your back, and our teams are working to get you to your final destination just as quickly as possible. Thanks as always for the trust you place in us.”

No one among the five crew members or the 96 passengers was hurt.
