Fighter jet loses front landing gear

Surely, we all dream about being up there with Top Gun instructors and kicking.. well, you know what I mean. Reality is a bit different, although this particular situation proves that real life situations can get more exciting and dangerous than whatever you could come up in Hollywood.

Check out the video to find out more! P.S. Incredible flying!
