emergency – LOT92K KRK-WAW (Dash 8 Q400) on final approach to Warsaw RWY 11 without front landing gear. Main gear reported down & locked. Same situation like 2-3 weeks ago @airlivenet. Still trying to deploy front gear.

Warsaw Airport remains closed until 22:30 UTC (23:30 local time), according to Eurocontrol. All inbound flights are diverting to other airports.
A similar incident with the same aircraft type and airline almost occurred less than a month ago when pilots of LOT flight #LO3844 were able to extend the landing gear just in the last moment.
In November 2017, a FlyBe Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 on flight #BE331 landed without front landing gear at Belfast Airport (BFS).
