Lufthansa's India-bound jet nosedives

Frankfurt: A Lufthansa AG jumbo jet collapsed on its nose at Frankfurt airport when the front landing gear gave way as it was preparing to fly to New Delhi, an airline spokesman said on Monday.
The 242 passengers and 16 crew members on board the Boeing 747-400 had to abandon the plane after the nose sank down onto a waiting tow truck.
"No one was injured. Everyone was able to leave the aircraft via the passenger bridge," the spokesman said.
The passengers were being put up in Frankfurt hotels on Monday night and were due to take a different flight to New Delhi on Tuesday morning.
The original flight - LH760 - had been due for takeoff late on Monday night.
The plane was relatively new and had been delivered to Lufthansa in December 2001.
