On 30 Apr 2017 at 10:00z, a TAAG Angola, 737-700, D2-TBF, 34559/2013, suffered a collapse of its nose landing-gear following a landing on Runway 24 at Soyo, Angola (FNSO) in benign weather conditions. The aircraft remained on the runway throughout the event and there were no injuries.

Prestigio newspaper is reporting that a spokesperson for the airline has reported that the crew were working the after landing checklist when they inadvertently raised the landing gear handle to the up position. See extract below:

Recorrendo a uma linguagem eminentemente técnica, própria de quem é da esfera aeronáutica, fonte da revista Prestígio em Angola disse que o que sucedeu foi  que  “depois da aterragem, estavam a `taxiar´, ao fazer o `after landing checklist`, aparentemente por alguma distracção foi se mexer na alavanca do `landing` gear que resultou no `down position` para o `up position` e como o `graund` sensor não funcionou accionou de imediato a recolha do trem da frente, o que resultou na posição em se que verifica a aeronave”.
