Watch: Harrier with malfunctioning landing gear uses padded stool to land aboard the USS Bataan

Marine Corps Capt. William Mahoney worried how he would land when the nose landing gear on his AV-8B Harrier malfunctioned after he took off from the Norfolk-based USS Bataan. Fortunately for him the Bataan carries a special padded stool for just such an emergency. Mahoney says he never actually saw the stool during the landing.
