The emergency landing of JetBlue 262 was the best damn reality television I’ve ever seen. From the moment the back tires touched down, to the time the plane finally rolled to a stop—and especially while the front tires were melting away in flames—it was unclear if the front landing gear was going to hold, or snap off and send the nose of the plane skidding down the runway (possibly sparking a terrible fire). But the gear held, and no one was hurt. Amazing.

Check out the video.
