An Air Peace Boeing 737-500, registration 5N-BQR performing flight P4-7111 from Abuja to Ilorin (Nigeria), landed on Ilorin's runway 05 but burst nose gear tyres and was disabled on the runway. The passengers disembarked via stairs.

The runway and airport needed to be closed until the aircraft could be moved off the runway. Several airlines cancelled their flights to/from Ilorin as result.

The airline reported the aircraft experienced a minor tyre burst after landing while taxiing.

Photos circulating on the Internet in social media showing the nose wheels had separated show another accident, see Accident: Peace B733 at Lagos on Jul 23rd 2019, hard landing causes nose wheels to separate.
