A Small Planet Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration YL-LCE performing flight LLC-3206 from Hurghada (Egypt) to Vilnius (Lithuania) with 153 passengers, was on approach to Vilnius when the crew received an unsafe indication for the nose gear and aborted the approach. The crew used the alternate gear extension which lowered and locked all gear. The aircraft landed safely in Vilnius about 15 minutes after aborting the first approach and needed to be towed off the runway due to lack of nose gear steering as result of the manual gear extension.
