A small plane had to make a scary landing Tuesday at Brookhaven Calabro Airport in Shirley.
The aircraft was resting on its nose during the landing.
The pilot had to do what is called a "gear-up landing" after being unable to extend the plane's landing gear.
The pilot says the problem was caused by a circuit breaker malfunction.
