KLAX emergency FedEx B767 landing gear up FDX1026

Hear this all go down while I was at work and he was circling over Catalina.   Added the company frequency, Emergency freq, and SOCAL to the scan list.   The loud guy eating his mic is ground maintenance.  He tried to get the pilot to call a technical pilot over a cell phone which, as expected..didn't work.  The pilot has 1/2 hr fuel left and decided to just land.   One crew member injured his foot escaping. GREAT JOB by the pilot!

This was a Uniden BC898T with a PAR VHFBP aircraft bandpass filter, recorded on Xcorder in our company ham shack in Century City.
