An All Nippon Airways passenger plane with 60 people aboard made a successful emergency landing today after circling an airport in western Japan for nearly two hours when its front landing gear failed to descend.

No one was injured when the Bombardier DHC-8 turboprop made a controlled landing on its rear wheels and then carefully touched its nose to the runway.

Sparks shot from the bottom of the white and blue fuselage as the plane skidded to a halt, but the pilot kept it on the tarmac

Another news article mentioned a DHC8-400, so assume the plane is similar to Qantas's Q400s
