When I was a kid, we lived about 1 mile from an RCAF training base. One day, a US based training jet set out to land there. I don't remember what the cause of this jet doing a belly landing was, but the only thing that was hurt was the pilot's pride. Lesson one after take off. Raise wheels! Lesson number one before landing. Lower wheels. As I recall, the media kept this hush hush at the time. And the snow Fence was placed around the site
