Report in The Aviation Herald: https://avherald.com/h?article=4c0f2a13&opt=0

"both nose wheels separated from the nose gear strut causing the aircraft to skid to a halt on the runway about 1200 meters/3900 feet down the runway at about 23:00L (16:00Z). The aircraft was evacuated via slides. Six passengers received minor injuries as result of the evacuation and were taken to local hospitals."

Several aircraft on approach were sent off.

woooowww, that was a whole flock knocked out of the air. Traces everywhere, not only the frontal area, but engine nacelles, spinners, flaps, main gear.
Lucky escape for all on board...

35-year old A300 OO-TZD (ex TNT Airways 2001-2004) is still flying:

"...On 23th July 2018, an AeroUnion Airbus A300B4 freighter, registration XA-MRC performing flight 6R-303 from Los Angeles to Mexico City landed on Mexico City's runway 05R, but came to a stop on the runway with 3 main tyres deflated. Mexico's DGAC reported the aircraft damaged three main tyres during the landing roll apparently due to the failure of the anti-skid. The occurrence was rated a serious incident and is being investigated..."

Another incident for the former TNT OO-TZD:

"...An AeroUnion Airbus A300B4-203(F) suffered a nose gear collapse incident while being towed across the ramp in the maintenance area of Mexico City-Benito Juárez International Airport..."
