The domestic passenger flight CBE7222 from Mexico City-Benito Juárez International Airport (MEX) was approaching Nuevo Laredo-Quetzalcoatl International Airport (NLD) when the main undercarriage failed to get down and locked. The crew decided to divert to Monterrey because the airport was better equipped to handle an emergency. Nuevo Laredo just has a single 2000 m runway.
The crew carried out an emergency landing on runway 29 and came to rest on its right hand wing. It is unclear if the landing gear leg was up during landing or if it retracted/collapsed on landing.
