On 19 July 2018, a Quest Kodiak 100 aircraft registered P2-NTZ experienced a nose wheel collapse during landing at Mibu Airstrip, Raicoast District, Padang Province, Papua New Guinea. The Papua New Guinea Accident Investigation Commission (AIC) is conducting an investigation into this occurrence.

As part of its investigation, the AIC has requested technical assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB). The ATSB will examine the fractured nose wheel assembly to determine failure mode and identify any pre-existing defects, if present.

To facilitate this request, the ATSB initiated an external investigation under the provisions of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

The PNG Accident Investigation Commission is responsible for and will administer the release of the final investigation report into this accident.
