A pilot of an All Nippon Airways (ANA) Bombardier DHC8-Q400 plane had to make a belly landing at Kochi Airport after he realised that his front landing gear did not come down. View the video here. Remarkably, all 56 passengers and 4 crew members were unhurt. Another pilot with a major airline praised the belly landing calling it "an ideal landing". After this incident, ANA grounded all its Bombardier planes for inspection and wouldn't resume service until their safety have been confirmed.
