Pilot lands faulty fighter jet on a stool at sea

The US military has released video of a fighter pilot landing his jet on a ship faultlessly and without full landing gear on 7 June.

When the front landing gear malfunctioned he had to land vertically, bringing the nose of the aircraft down to rest on a stool.

US Marine Corps Capt. William Mahoney explained that he could not even see the stool underneath his plane.

He later realised the crew of the USS Bataan had evacuated the landing deck in case he crashed.

Video filmed and edited by the US military.
