US-Bangla Airlines flight 141 diverted to Chittagong Airport, Bangladesh, after the nose landing gear failed to deploy while on approach to Cox's Bazar Airport.
The aircraft, a Boeing 737-800, departed Dhaka, Bangladesh at 11:48 hours on a domestic service to Cox's Bazar. On approach to runway 17, the flight crew selected the undercarriage down, but the nose landing gear failed to deploy. At 12:26 the crew executed a go around. The aircraft circled the field several times, but the nosegear would not deploy. The crew decided to divert to Chittagong Airport. The runway at Chittagong has a Landing Distance Available (LDA) of 2940 m as opposed to 2042 m for Cox's Bazar. Chittagong also has a higher fire fighting category (7 as opposed to 5).
The aircraft overflew runway 23 at Chittagong Airport once before a forced landing was executed at 13:16 hours. It came to rest 70 m short of the runway 05 threshold and about 210 m short of the runway end, including the paved stopway and Runway End Safety Area (RESA).
An evacuation was carried out after the aircraft came to a stop on the runway.
