A pilot landed his 80% replica Spitfire without landing gear.

On Jul. 19, a pilot carried out a perfect emergency landing of his replica Spitfire without landing gear.

The aircraft was flying at Sibson airfield, UK, when the pilot radioed that he could not extend the aircraft’s landing gear.

While emergency services arrived at the scene, the pilot circled nearby for about 20 minutes to burn fuel before attempting a belly landing.

The pilot managed to land the Spitfire on the grass runway and walked away unharmed. The replica plane appears to be little damaged.
