Video shows a small plane making an emergency landing after losing its landing gear

A pilot has made a fantastic emergency landing at an airport in South Australia after his little one of the plane the landing gear jammed.

Emergency crews were on standby as the pilot made his nail-biting descent after dozens of attempts.

The pilot circled several times as emergency crews and CFS flooded the runway at Aldinga airstrip, south of Adelaide, with fire-fighting foam.

After finally bringing the plane down, the pilot climbed out, unharmed

The alarm had been raised over an hour earlier when the pilot of the Beechcraft Baron plane told those on the ground that he had no landing gear.

He began circling, approaching the runway again and again, only to take off again several times.

At one point, the small plane was heading out over the water, possibly to get rid of some of its fuel and reduce the risk of fire.

“He would be going through hell at the moment,” said one witness.

An hour and fifty minutes after he first took off, the plane came in to land and made it successfully.

The pilot was applauded for his handling of the emergency and thanked the responders.
