Guwahati: This video content might get you goosebumps as you can spot how an Indian Air Force (IAF) Flight Lieutenant Gunadnya Kharche successfully landed the An-52 transport aircraft on a single landing wheel at the Sulur Air Force Base in Tamil Nadu after its left main wheel got jammed.
The incident reportedly took place on 6 February 2012, but the video was only made public yesterday (10 October). It has been shared by the defence website Livefist.
Flight Lieutenant Kharche was awarded a Shaurya Chakra in August 2012 for this stunning landing.
Here's the video
In the viral video, a person can be heard saying that the doors of the left main wheel are only partially open and the wheels are unable to deploy.
Subsequently one can see the aircraft carrying out a slow approach and touching down on the runway on just the right wheel. The Flight Lieutenant successfully managed to bring the aircraft to a stop even as it embanked on the left due to the missing wheel.
