Aeroplane Crash Landing Definitely Needed More Foam

This morning, the crew of this Fokker had 90 minutes of fuel to troubleshoot an unsafe gear alert reported by its onboard computer. Unfortunately, they couldn't fix it on time. Updated: Added video of the crash landing.

That's the kind of troubleshooting that will result in my brain getting a kernel panic. Fortunately for all the passengers, the 60-year-old captain and his copilot have steel cojones and, after the airport firefighters foamed the runway, they landed the aeroplane without any significant problems.
