Default FOX NEWS ALERT - Van Nuys Twin Engine Cessna landing with no nose gear

It is on now, looks like the nose gear will only come halfway down. I'm sure
the news stations are predicting (wishing?) doom!

Just watched it. Good job. This guy was sharp and knew what he was
doing. Nailed the airspeed on final, shut um both down and
horizontaled tthe props with the starters. Did it in jig time too.
Even set it down hard on the mains to get one last shot at lowering
the nose gear. The nose on those 310's is not all that far out in
front and it's real hard to keep it up for more than a few seconds in
a situation like this one.
Looked like he might have caught the left tip a bit but I don't think
he got the crank. Should be ok with a little work and be back flying
again shortly.

I guess the plane was registered to Donald Trump at one time.

This might appear as a double post;

I remember them flying the Bamboo Bomber and I do seem to recall at
the end of the show run seeing a 310 in the mix somewhere but I'm not
certain.
I actually hated the show and didn't watch it all that much.

They definitely had a 300 series Cessna for some of the episodes. All (or
at least most) of the episodes are online somewhere, although I don't have
the link. They are even more painful to watch today.

Some of those old shows were really something. I remember as a kid
going to the movies on Saturdays and watching those serials where
somehow every week just like clockwork, no matter what the plot was,
the heros always ended up in a mine shaft in a racing mine cart headed
for an open hole. Just as there seemed NO way in hell they could
survive the oncoming crackup, whamo!!...end of "this week's
episode. :-)))
