VIDEO: Passenger jet lands safely without a front wheel

Doing wheelies on a bike may be fun if you’re a thrill-seeker, but if you’re on a passenger jet, it’s a whole different story.

Video footage has emerged showing the unnerving moment a pilot landed a passenger plane without a nose gear, which had failed to extend for landing.

The IranAir flight made a controlled landing at Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport, with 94 passengers and 19 crew on board.

As the plane touched town on the tarmac, the pilot was able to keep the nose up and steady the jet, slowing it down before using the nose to bring the plane to a halt.

All passengers and crew disembarked the aircraft without injury.
