Plane makes safe landing without gear

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A plane is forced to make an emergency landing in Poland.

It had to touch down with no landing gear and it was all caught on camera. Right now, everyone is okay.

The airport in Warsaw, Poland just reopened after being closed overnight.

The flight took off from New Jersey headed for the Polish capitol. The plane experienced electrical failure and the landing gear wouldn't come down. Pilots had to circle the airport for more than an hour to burn off fuel to prepare for the emergency landing.

Emergency workers had to rush to put out a small fire and get the passengers to safety.

Passengers say the pilot did a great job.

The Polish government is calling the pilots and crew heroes.
