ECLIPSE AEROSPACE Lands in Boise with the towbar

Don't know  how, but somehow got in airborn in Caldwell, ID, flew to Boise with it attached.
In the clip, is the approach, and the landing, with the pilot commenting on some "noise" coming from the front.
Truck rolled, and toward the end of the clip, the Ops unit makes the discovery, glad it was a safe outcome, albiet a bit humorous.

AIRCRAFT LANDED WITH TOW BAR STILL ATTACHED TO FRONT GEAR, BOISE, ID.

I wonder how they were able to retract the gear with a towbar attached?  Seems like they would have noticed a problem shortly after takeoff, instead of after landing!  Wow!
