Watch This Pilot Make An Emergency Landing On Back Wheels Only

Last week, a pilot for Colombia's Avianca airline successfully landed a Fokker 100 on the back wheels only, carefully balancing the nose in the air until the plane had slowed to a safe speed.

The pilot managed to figure out that the front landing gear had failed, so he circled Brasilia to use up the plane's fuel before attempting the landing at Brasilia.

Reuters reports that none of the 49 passengers or the five-person crew were injured.
