Right, and aluminum oxide is created by pixies casting magic spells in the mushroom forest.

This is a good example of why there are real pilots up front as well as an autopilot.

It`s more about skill than balls, though. Bravery isn`t going to land the plane. Getting it down and stopped in what looked like a safe, smooth landing takes shiploads of skill.

They`re supposed to burn rubber (tires) not metal (hull).

Actually, aluminum does create sparks, albeit not nearly as much as steel. If this had been at night, and if the runway had not been covered with fire retardant foam, you would have seen some sparks.

Jets have landing gear, a collective term for struts, wheels, and tires. But not gears. And especially not gears and wheels.

It would take more balls if the pilot decided to just keep flying

The title made me immediately think of this joke:
A polish pilot and his co-pilot declare an emergency and have to land the plane at the first available runway. As soon as the plane`s wheels touch the runway, both pilots step on the brakes with all their strength and the plane comes screaching to a stop.
The pilot says to the co-pilot "Wow! That has to be the shortest landing strip I`ve ever landed on!". The co-pilot responds "Yeah...and so wide!"

Not really about having balls - he had to land the plane. Simple as that.
