Emergency Gear-Up Landing Captured From Aircraft Cabin

A hydraulic line failure in this Cessna 404 Titan forced the pilot to make an emergency gear-up landing.

The emergency blow down bottle (a backup for the landing gear) had a valve malfunction so there was no option available from that point on, other than to make an emergency gear-up landing. In addition, a small fire started after the plane skidded to a stop. Fortunately, it was quickly extinguished.
