WATCH: Small plane's rough landing at Oakland County International Airport

A pilot of a small airplane is going to be okay after a rough landing at Oakland County International Airport on Monday.

Around 3:30 Monday afternoon, the single-engine plane came in for a rough landing. It had spent the previous two and half hours circling the airport.

According the airport, the plane's pilot was unable to get the landing gear locked down when they tried to initially land. The pilot aborted that landing attempt and then tried to remedy the problem while circling overhead.

SkyFox was near the airport and captured video of the plane landing. When it came in for the landing, the front landing gear collapsed and the plane skidded to a stop.

The pilot escaped the plane quickly and was not injured.

The plane is a 1978 Piper PA-28 Cherokee and is registered to IXI LLC.
