The plane sustained a nose landing gear collapse on landing at Phitsanulok Airport, Phitsanulok, Phitsanulok Province, Thailand on October 29, 2013. No one was injured in the accident. According to a contemporary news report (see link #3 for the original text):

"Another accident with an aircraft

On 17:30 a small aircraft from Royal Skyway reported problems with its front bogie to Phitsanulok's tower. The captain announced an emergency landing. To lose weight and kerosene he flew the aircraft about 90 minutes above Pitsanulok's airport.

At about 19:00 the pilot decided to land the plane. The aircraft touched the runway more or less unharmed. None of the pilots, instructors and passengers are injured. An aircraft from Nok Air that usually is serving Phitsanulok at about 19:30 had to wait for the reopening of the airport and landed at about 20:55."
