How to land a plane without wheels

While our nightmares might revolve around turning up to an important meeting wearing no clothes, we imagine that pilots must have nightmares that come pretty close to this.

Yesterday, a LOT airplane travelling from New Jersey to Poland made an emergency landing in Warsaw after an equipment failure which meant that no wheels could be deployed.

Amazingly, none of the 230 passengers were injured. Capt. Tadeusz Wrona has been hailed as a hero and already has Facebook fan pages in his honour.

Somebody, get the guy a job in Hollywood already.
