RAAF F-111 Belly Landing

When the wheel falls off this F-111 the young Australian Air Force Pilot has his flying skills put to the test as he attempts a belly landing rather than ejecting from the plane. Their Squadron Leader who was also a senior F-111 pilot consulted the flight manual to see how to deal with this flight emergency only to discover they were going to be writing this section of the manual. The pilot’s training paid off as he was able to safely land the aircraft using the arresting hook to help slow it down.
