A small Cessena had only it's front landing gear working and landed on its belly today in Morristown, NJ. No injuries.

Looks on the video like the pilot didn't stop the prop before it struck the ground. Oops.

Looks to be N9453D, a 172RG.

Glad there are no injuries being reported.

Well, unless you stall the airplane, it's not gonna happen on a 172. He most likely cut the mixture to idle cut-off and shut off the master switch just before touchdown.

And hey, they walked away. A good landing in anyone's book.
