A nightmare scenario many of us fear when boarding a plane - the Boeing 767 plane was forced to land on its belly after a technical failure with the plane's landing gear. Miraculously, it landed safely.
It must have felt like an eternity as the plane slid along on its belly. A landing none of the 230 passengers could have expected when they took off from Newark on the flight to Warsaw.
"It was unexpectedly calm. Pilot has landed perfectly, the crew have kept us calm. We were sure that we have landed on wheels. We were clapping hands, we thought that there was landing on wheels. But it turned that there was no wheels," said one passenger.
Once it was clear that the landing gear had failed, they had no choice but to land without it. For the safest possible landing, the plane had to burn off excess fuel and circled around Warsaw for an hour.
Sparks flew at Warsaw Airport as the plane slid along the runway in what was a textbook belly-down landing. Emergency crews rushed to the scene. Luckily, there was no blaze and not of one the 230 passengers or crew were hurt.
The airport remains closed until at least Thursday morning.
