A passenger plane pilot has been praised for safely landing a packed plane after the landing gear failed.
Scared passengers recalled how the pilot managed to turn the plane around and touched down, despite the technical malfunction.
The footage was captured by an aircraft enthusiast as he drove along a road parallel with the runway to keep up with the plane as it came in to land.
After it touched down, emergency vehicles can be seen surrounding the landed plane.
Heathrow Airport was reduced to one runway for around an hour until the plane was secured and towed away.
The aircraft was reportedly held at 9,000ft and had to dump fuel before landing, with a huge round of applause when the plane safely touched down.
Passengers were transferred to a second aircraft but many were too worried to board.
Muriel Gray, whose husband was on the flight, thanked the pilot for making a safe landing.
She tweeted: "The hugest kisses and hugs to the British-Airways pilot who just landed the plane my husband was on when the landing gear failed."
Heathrow airport tweeted: "Due to a technical issue with an aircraft that needed resolving on the runway, Heathrow operated with only one runway for a short time.
"We're sorry that this has caused some disruption to flights."
A statement from British Airways said: "The safety of our customers and crew is always our top priority. As a precaution, one of our flights returned to Heathrow due to a technical issue.
"After a short delay, while our engineers finished their checks, we moved the aircraft from the runway and our customers were transferred to a replacement aircraft.
The captain made the decision to abort the flight over Iceland, the same spot were American Airlines flight AA109 turned round last week after a mystery illness struck down passengers and crew .
