Pilot emergency lands private plane in Scottsdale, Arizona with no wheels, skids safely along runway

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - 2NEWS' Phoenix affiliate caught on video an emergency landing of a small plane outside of Scottsdale Thursday afternoon, and boy, was it dramatic. 

The pilot was seen safely belly landing his plane without landing gear around 12:30 p.m. at Scottsdale Municipal Airport.

The pilot was heard on the scanner saying, "If I don't make it, tell my wife I love her," according to station pilot Roland Rinnerberger.

Once the plane came to a stop, the pilot got out, slowly walked away, and turned around to stare at the plane.

Fire crews were then seen covering up part of the aircraft.

Very little information is available at this time.
