A drone has crashed into a passenger plane in Mexico ripping holes into the front of the craft as it attempted to land in Tijuana.
The crew on board the flight had to request help in order to land the mauled aircraft however nobody was injured during the incident.
They reportedly heard a 'very strong blow' on the plane and then asked for help from the control tower after becoming concerned.
It was completing its route from Miguel Hidalgo and Costilla Airport in the city of Guadalajara when the remote-controlled aircraft smashed into the side of the plane.
In the photos, the nose of the plane can be seen damaged, with a huge dent in its tip and chunks of the nose are missing.
The Aeromexico Boeing 737-800's radome was also affected by the collision, which protects the plane's radar, according to local media.



The pilot reportedly told the co-pilot 'we didn't see anything, just a strong hit' after the incident.
Aeromexico confirmed the plane managed to land without problems and told reporters they are waiting to see the accident report before giving more details.



The plane had taken off from Guadalajara at 6.41am and landed in Tijuana at around 7:40am after three hours in the air.
The aircraft will stay grounded and be repaired and the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
Although the passengers were all able to leave the plane safely it left people fearing that it could have been a more serious incident.
One user wrote: 'Unfortunately it's only a matter of time until there is a strike with a much worse result.
While another, who didn't condone people flying drones near landing spaces, added: 'People flying drones near airports and planes need to be whacked with the full force of the law.
