This is how to land a plane in an emergency!

Here is some footage of an absolutely brilliantly performed crash emergency landing. I’m by no means an expert, nor have I ever received training on how to land a plane in an emergency, but it is pretty clear from the video clip that someone was paying attention at pilot training.

The pilot was flying his Cessna 310 this afternoon when he contacted the tower reporting some issues with his nose gear. It took him over an hour of circling Van Nuys to burn up the 80 gallons of fuel he did not want to land with.

You’ll notice how the pilot kills the engines before touchdown, keeps his nose up as long as he can, and lands the plane as smooth as possible.

As soon as the plane came to a halt, both passengers opened their doors and walked away. Kudos to the pilot!
