A pilot has lost control of a passenger plane after his prosthetic arm became detached during landing.
The Flybe plane was coming into land at Belfast City Airport from Birmingham in the UK.
Dark, gusty conditions and time constraints meant that the pilot had to continue to guide the plane into landing with one hand, without the help of his co-pilot.
I'll go out on a limb here and suggest that there aren't too many pilots with prosthetic limbs.
