The next time you’re on a plane and worried about emergency landings, remember this clip and how calmly the pilot glides his aircraft in.
The incident happened at the Palm Springs International Airport on Friday at around 3.20pm, local time. The private jet apparently suffered a landing gear failure, forcing the pilot to make an emergency belly landing on the runway.
In the video obtained by NBC, the jet glides into the small airport, and makes contact with the tarmac amid sparks and smoke. Fortunately, the plane comes to a complete stop at the end of the runway, and fire trucks were able to move in.
It’s reported that only the pilot and one other person were on board during the flight, but their names haven’t been released, and it’s not known where they were flying from.
