Just a few days ago, a pilot flying a single engine plane in Fort Lauderdale was forced to make a breathtaking and emergency landing upon discovering a problem with his landing gear.

Upon being made aware of the problem, the pilot flew the plane around for a bit in an effort to burn up fuel. Of course, the underlying reason behind such a move is that if you’re essentially going in for a crash landing, the less flammable fuel on-board the better. Then, after shutting down the engine, the pilot began gliding the plane ahead of his runway approach and belly landing.

Though there was a little smoke to be found in the cockpit after nailing the landing, the pilot reportedly walked away uninjured.
