    Pilot Lands without front landing gear

    Couple things here. When did that guy go from ESPN anchor to ABC News team? Or does he do both? Also, awesome landing.

    Did he land it into the bed of a pickup?

    The question is, do you tell the passengers the problem before landing or do you just sorta do it? Because if you do, you just raised the stock price of Kohls.

    I was wondering the same. I'm sure they have to say something i.e. brace for rough landing etc...

    Either way, I hope I'm NEVER in that situation...I love traveling but HATE flying...

    Yes, you tell the passengers. If you didnt, and there were injuries, I could see where there would be a big problem. Good job by the pilot, thankfully I never had an emergency like that come up when I was flying for Continental Express.
