Plane touches down with landing gear not working at Peterborough Municipal Airport, Ontario, Canada

PETERBOROUGH -- A two-seater Amphibian/Searay plane had to make an emergency landing at the Peterborough Airport on Tuesday (July 23).

The lone pilot radioed into the airport controls just shortly after 2:30 p.m. indicating the aircraft's landing gear had malfunctioned and only one wheel had opened up. 

The plane circled the airport for more than an hour, burning off fuel until a decision was made to land the plane on one wheel as lightning and rain began to fall. The plane cruised in for a smooth landing.

The pilot was not injured and the plane did not receive any damage as a result of the emergency landing.
