The airplane entered a holding to troubleshoot the issue and subsequently landed on runway 27 with the nose wheels rotated by 90 degrees at 20:52 local time about 25 minutes after the first approach. The airplane came to a safe stop, no injuries occurred, the airplane received grinding damage to the nose wheels.
The incident occurred due to the wheels of the nose landing gear of the aircraft turning irreversibly to the physical limit of 95º with respect to their longitudinal axis, in the air and with the nose landing gear locked in the down position.
