So the "gear failure" was actually a crew failure?
what is vietnamese for GUMP? there are only two kinds of pilots- those that have and those that will....where is the check list, the crew concept, the expectation that when the gear comes down it gets a bit nosier , airspeed a bit more critical ?
Ass câm, bạn quên đặt các bánh xe xuống!
In a B787 Dreamliner?!? This beggars belief!
Additional coverage from the Sydney Morning Herald:
look for a moment at the list of things overlooked at this near disaster: gear not down, flaps maybe not set, three green not indicated, a quiteter than usual cockpit, a checklist several times ignored, constant panel scans not done or ignored, and an unusual feeling in the yoke- lots more movement than any other landing yet- no red lights here to ignore, sharon, and perhaps most telling- speed control: 160 no flaps, no gear, : wow........
