The pilot inside of a King Air B200 had a scary finish to a flight on Wednesday when the plane landed without its front landing gear on the runway of Will Rodgers World Airport near Oklahoma City. 

According to KFOR-TV, the pilot alerted air traffic controllers at the airport that he was going to make a landing at the airport. The pilot then put the plane down using the rear wheels. 

KFOR-TV said that the pilot, who was not injured, was the plane's only passenger. 

After the plane came to a stop, some smoke came from the plane. Fortunately, the pilot was able to escape through the rear of the plane. 

The B200 is a 1970s era plane that seats up to 13.
