Incredible moment a hero pilot safely landed a private jet with no landing gear is captured on camera.
A small plane suffered landing gear issues and was forced to make an emergency belly landing Friday. The private jet’s landing gear failed to open as it approached Palm Springs International Airport in California.
Video of the landing shows the plane smoothly glide across the pavement until it comes to a stop near the end of the runway and only the pilot and one other person were aboard the jet and no injuries were suffered.
There does not appear to be any landing gear deployed on the jet in the video.
As the plane hits the ground, it appears to smoothly glide across the pavement until it comes to a stop near the end of the runway.
Riverside County firefighters and officers with the Palm Springs Police Department were on hand at the airport to manage the potentially dangerous aftermath of the emergency landing.
The video then shows a firetruck spraying the bottom of the plane to prevent a fire from igniting.
