27 Mar 2017 - 737-400, EP-TBJ (28202 / 3009), FF 02/03/1998, operated by Taban Airlines has suffered a failure of its right-hand main landing-gear whilst landing on Runway 33 at Ardabil airport, in northern Iran.

The operator stated that the tyre burst but photographs show that the right hand engine is in contact with the ground which strongly suggests a MLG collapse. There was a strong crosswind at the time of landing.
