A Fargo pilot en route to his friend's funeral made an emergency landing Wednesday in Casper, Wyo., after the plane's landing gear failed.


Stewart Peterson spent nearly an hour trying to manually lower the landing gear, but was forced to land the plane on its belly as it ran out of fuel.

Peterson was flying from Fargo with the parents of his late friend, Tom Noonan, to the funeral in Casper.
