2. Pilot takes off from belly of plane without landing gear
from Inside Edition
From April 30:
Eighty-five-year-old pilot Chris Georgaklis pulled off a breathtaking feat when things didn't go as planned during a landing. Georgaklis was coming in for a landing in Fort Pierce, Florida, in his small plane with his dog, Buddy, when he realized he was coming in too fast. He quickly raised the landing gear as the plane descended and began skidding down the runway. He explained, "I lifted them right up, but it also caused the plane to drop quite a bit, so I'd say the plane dropped maybe six to eight feet."
