I went to try the live feed on CNN but for some reason the sound isn't working. Anyone else having the same problems?
Go Eagles!

Aircraft is flying the pattern. Gear looks to be down, whether or not it is locked I do not know. Emergency services look to be in a briefing.

Perfect landing - I'm sure his instructor is proud.

Nice when they end like that!

It's amazing how calm he was afterwards. He mentioned that he had been through similar situations in the past.

It shows what 30+ years of flying does.

Here's a video link of his emergency landing:

By the way, he's a pilot for my TV Station. We were all a bit nervous today (probably a lot more than Pete), but we knew he'd make it all work out.

I can't believe how calm he was. We had to call the emergency crews, he didn't even want them notified!!!
