Pilot uses stool to make improvised landing on aircraft carrier
A pilot made an incredible landing after his landing gear malfunctioned. The Marine Corps released video of the impressive feat, which happened on the deck of the USS Bataan. The pilot, Capt. William Mahoney, said the landing gear on his AV-8B Harrier malfunctioned, leaving him no choice but to improvise. A colleague in the tower suggested that Mahoney put the plane's nose down on the stool. The pilot couldn't see the stool as he descended, but made it work.
