AV-8B Harrier Emergency Landing Without Nose Gear. Amazing Display Of Skill!
U.S. Marine Corps Capt. William Mahoney, AV-8B Harrier aircraft pilot, talks about his experience during a controlled landing after his front landing gear malfunctioned on the aircraft aboard the USS Bataan, at sea, June 7, 2014.
Can you imaging flying a multi-million dollar aircraft, having to land it by dropping 20 feet onto a little platform no more than a few feet wide WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO SEE IT!? Amazing stuff!

It's amazing that he was able to do that. He had a lot of faith in his fellow navy guys

Wow, I wonder how much force it would take for the nose to just bend off
