A small plane made a hard landing on Friday morning at Timmerman Airport in Milwaukee.

An exclusive video by Matt Salemme from News Chopper 12 shows the moments when the plane landed and its nose scraped the ground and skidded 954 feet.

“We always land after the morning news a little after 7 am. We got out of the helicopter and normally the head of maintenance is not there,” said Salemme.

Salemme said the maintenance chief learned that a plane’s nose gear had malfunctioned.

They watched him do a hover to try it out manually, but the video shows he failed.

“The pilot did a wonderful job landing safely, you know? He went up in flames at the right time. He kept his nose off the ground as long as he could, you know, to make sure that he had no problems. They had quite a bit of fuel on board, so I know they were worried about that, “said Salemme.

We do not yet know what went wrong with the plane.

The Milwaukee Fire Department said when it arrived at the scene, there was no one on the plane, but they were eventually able to locate the pilot.

Inside a nearby hangar, he told investigators he was alone on the plane and was fine.

The landing caused the most damage to the propellers, which bent.

After several hours on the runway, the crews towed the aircraft so they could understand why the landing gear failed.

It is not known where the plane was heading, but it is a Beechcraft King Air.

Salemme said he was part of the Spring City Aviation Charter department.
