A pilot of a small airplane is going to be okay after a rough landing at Oakland County International Airport on Monday.

Around 3:30 Monday afternoon, the single-engine plane came in for a rough landing. It had spent the previous two and half hours circling the airport.
According the airport, the plane's pilot was unable to get the landing gear locked down when they tried to initially land. The pilot aborted that landing attempt and then tried to remedy the problem while circling overhead.

SkyFox was near the airport and captured video of the plane landing. When it came in for the landing, the front landing gear collapsed and the plane skidded to a stop.

The pilot escaped the plane quickly and was not injured.

The plane is a 1978 Piper PA-28 Cherokee and is registered to IXI LLC. 

Story and video: 

WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - A small plane has made a daring emergency landing at the Oakland County International Airport.

The plane began having problems with its front landing gear shortly before noon.

After circling for hours, it finally came in a short time ago.

As it came in, you could see the pilot trying to keep the weight of the plane on the back landing gears.

As soon as the front wheel hit the ground, it folded underneath the aircraft.

Once the plane came to a stop, two people quickly hopped out, in case it caught fire.

Fortunately, everyone appears to be okay.

We're told the plane is part of a flight school that flies out of Oakland County Airport.
