A British Airways Airbus A319-100, registration G-EUPR performing flight BA-950 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Munich (Germany), was on final approach to Munich's runway 26R when the crew initiated a go around from about 500 feet AGL due to problems with the landing gear. The aircraft climbed to 8000 feet and entered a hold, while the airport kept all runways sterile and deployed all emergency services. After holding at 8000 feet for about 35 minutes the aircraft performed a low approach to runway 26L, climbed back to 5000 feet, positioned for another approach to runway 26L and stopped on the runway about 2250 meters/7400 feet down the runway. After landing the airport resumed operation on the northern runway. The aircraft was towed off the (southern) runway.

The airport reported the crew reported a problem with the nose gear, it was unclear whether it could be fully extended or not. Both northern and southern runways were temporarily closed, emergency services including volunteer resources around the airport positioned to the runway. The crew finally was able to land the aircraft safely with the nose gear fully extended.

A ground observer reported that the gear doors were closed after landing. It appeared that the gear came down only shortly before the low pass. Emergency services were brought in from all around the airport, the airport prepared for an evacuation of the aircraft.
