Dramatic footage has emerged showing a pilot successfully landing a plane without front wheels.

The Asia Pacific Boeing 727 landed at Guam International Airport last week with three people on board after travelling from Honolulu, the Daily Mail reported.

Just 20 minutes before the plane was due to land, airport control was notified that a developing situation could affect the aircraft's safe landing.

Fuel was released prior to landing to make the aircraft light, the Pacific Daily News reported.


It practised a landing, known as a "touch-and-go" maneuver, before it successfully touched down.

Emergency services attended the cargo plane - which was on a training flight - after it came to a halt, although no smoke, fire or injuries were reported.

Some flights were delayed by a few minutes as a result.
