    Cool What a landing

    Helicopters captured the risky landing at the Morristown, N.J. airport. The plane, a Cessna 172, had only one wheel descended as it touched down.

    It had circled the airport trying to burn off its fuel reserves before attempting the landing.

    Officials confirm the plane's landing gear was stuck and say this kind of landing is not totally uncommon.

    Crash trucks were ready at the airport and doused the plane with chemicals to prevent a possible fire.

    That was a very nice landing. He/She did a very good job of touching down smoothly and after the intersection of the runways to keep from fouling both runways.

    Dont forget to shut off the engine before touchdown to preserve it and keep from breaking the prop loose.

    Nice landing.
