Video: US Marine Captain lands AV-8B Harrier aircraft without nose gear

On June 7, US Marine Corps Captain William Mahoney had to perform a vertical landing on the USS Bataan, part of the US Sixth Fleet, after his AV-8B Harrier aircraft experienced a front landing gear malfunction. This video shows Mahoney landing his craft on a raised and cushioned ‘stool’ on the deck of the USS Bataan. “It was a pretty big relief – I didn’t realise how much I was shaking until I got out of the aircraft,” said Mahoney.
