A Ryanair Boeing 737-800, registration EI-DYC performing flight FR-9719 from Rome Ciampino (Italy) to Brussels Charleroi (Belgium), landed on Charleroi's runway 24, when upon nose gear touchdown a lot of noise and severe vibrations occurred until the aircraft came to a stop on the runway. The aircraft was disabled on the runway, the passengers disembarked onto the runway via stairs about three hours after landing.

Passengers reported that as soon as the nose gear touched down a lot of noise and severe vibrations occurred that lasted until the aircraft came to a stop. The crew initially suspected they might have blown a tyre. They were kept on board for about three hours until they were able to disembark and were bussed to the terminal. Upon disembarking they could see a nose wheel was fractured. The aircraft could not be towed, and according to what they were told to explain the long wait there weren't enough shuttle busses available at Charleroi to take the passengers to the terminal.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Charleroi about 39 hours after landing.

According to information The Aviation Herald received a pin and bolt was missing from the torsion link. The bolt and pin was later found on the departure runway in Rome. After lifting the gear off the ground and rotating the axle to a good position the aircraft could subsequently be towed.
