Beschrijving:
The DC-8 sustained a nose gear collapse on landing rollout at Iquitos Airport's runway 06. After touchdown the crew noticed a 'gear unsafe' warning. Shortly afterwards the nose landing gear collapsed.

The accident was caused by the fracture of the upper cap of the nose gear shock strut which in turn led to the failure of the control arms of the down lock safety mechanism.
