Subject: From our friends at the National Transportation Safety Board:
How'd you like to have been a passenger on this puppy. "Hey pilot! This is the tower. You forgot to lower your gear!" Whoops.
NTSB Identification: DCA06WA006
Scheduled 14 CFR Part 121: Air Carrier operation of USAirways, Inc.
Incident occurred: Sunday, November 06, 2005 in London, United Kingdom
Aircraft: Boeing 767-200,
On November 6, 2005, at 0745 local British time, the flight crew of a USAirways Boeing 767-200, registered in the United States as N653US, failed to lower the landing gear until notified by the air traffic control tower to go around. The tower controller then observed the gear extend and amended his instructions to allow the aircraft to land. This is being investigated by the British Air Accidents Investigation branch as a serious incident.
