C-2 Lands Sans Gear, Takes The Wire

Tue Aug 16, 2005 8:53 am

CNN a few minutes ago had a live shot of a C-2 belly landing and taking the wire. They said it was Norfolk but I think they meant Oceana. Starboard engine shutdown & feathered prior to touchdown....

Good job by the crew - the report on CNN.com says they circled "for hours" to get the emergency procedure down as to how they would land the craft.
