TAAG Angola Airlines flight DT130 suffered a nose landing gear retraction incident after landing at Soyo Airport, Angola.
The aircraft, a Boeing 737-700, originated in Luanda about 09:29 UTC. The aircraft landed on runway 24 at Soyo Airport about 10:03 UTC with 40 passengers and 6 crew members on board.
A spokesperson for the airline reported that the crew were working the after landing checklist when they inadvertently raised the landing gear handle to the up position.
The ground sensor of the nose landing gear apparently did not function, causing the nose gear to retract.

The aircraft came to rest with the nose contacting the runway surface.
