LC Peru DH8D could not extend nose gear at Ayacucho and Lima

A LC Peru de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration N404AV performing W4-1323 from Lima to Ayacucho (Peru) with 59 passengers and 5 crew, was on approach to Ayscucho when the crew received an unsafe indication for the nose gear. The crew went around, worked the related checklists and decided to return to Lima. The aircraft performed a low approach to Lima's runway 15 which confirmed the nose gear was not down. The aircraft subsequently positioned for another approach to runway 15 and landed about 2:48 hours after departure, the crew held the nose up as long as practicable before lowering the nose onto the runway causing sparks and smoke from the nose. The aircraft came to a stop without further incident, the passengers evacuated the aircraft. There were no injuries.

The airport confirmed an aircraft of LC Peru made an emergency landing.

Peru's National Emergency Operations Center reported the LC Peru Aircraft landed in Lima due to problems with the landing gear. No injuries occurred.
