Looks like we are getting our fair share of emergency landings with gear failures lately! Glad to see everyone got out ok! Great job to the crew

At the end of the video he says that it took 3 hours to burn off the fuel......they must have been tankering some serious fuel.

Amazing how this story goes by almost unnoticed, but the other two gear failures got a lot more attention. Is it significantly harder to make a landing like this in the dark?
