NBC NEWS — A dramatic emergency landing took place in Warsaw, Poland, today as a Polish Boeing 767 arrived in Warsaw from Newark, New Jersey touched down with no landing gear.
The passenger jet discovered the problem before landing and circled the airport for about an hour to burn off fuel.
The jet, which carried 231 people, landed on its belly. Fire could seen momentarily as the jet skidded to a stop.
Firefighters had spread special fire retardant material on the runway before the landing.
After the jet came to a stop, passengers could be seen rushing from the exits as fire trucks started spraying foam on the jet.
No one was injured.
