JFK - Camera phones in hand, passengers on a Delta Airlines flight headed for White Plains, New York capture the tense moments during an emergency landing.

Video from Delta passenger Chase Benzenberg includes the pilot's voice and these 3 dreaded words: "Brace for impact."

"To say there's going to be an emergency landing it was tense it was very tense."

Flight 4951 was supposed to go from Atlanta to White Plains, but it was rerouted to Kennedy after the pilot informed the control tower the right landing gear was not working.

"The right gear is stuck up. The other two are down."

Inside the cabin, 60 passengers - a few them sobbing, many praying as a flight attendant urgently repeated this command.

"Heads down, stay down; heads down, stay down; heads down, stay down."

"Here is the crash position heads down here and I'm holding the camera in my phone not trying to get quality image I don't know if we are going to slam and go crazy so I'm not looking up."

Benzenberg's co-worker Alessandro Albero was across the aisle, closest to the wing where all the trouble was. He used his camera phone.

"I couldn't keep my head down. I saw the sparks and it lit up my entire face."

The pilot balanced the jet on the left wheel, then eased it onto the right wing to slow it down and safely brought it to a stop.

The passengers were hurried off the plane filing past police and specially trained firef!ghters who were at the ready but not needed. There was no fire and no injuries.

"It could have been bad turned out to be a smooth landing."
