IF that will happen: news will be all over with that reports Big grin Or and then they might add: hard landings, long landings as well...
Then soon there will be a new channel on TV: Aviation "incidents"!

I think you would get a bit bored after several of "false indications lamps" in cockpit thats ends up to be nothing...  Silly

While looking for info about this incident I also read a short article that said a Qantas Q400 had had landing gear problems on Feb 20th.
Haven't been able to find any info about that here on a.net. Anyone know if it was just the same x-mas tree problem?

Wasn't there once some Xmas song which said something like "Christmas every day"?

This same type of incident was in fact what made the first SAS Q400 crash so severe. The captain said after the "landing": "I thought that it was another faulty indication, I was sure the gear was down and locked".

He did deploy spoilers immediately at touch down. He didn't stop #2 engine. Therefore some propeller shrapnels penetrated the cabin, injuring five passengers, while other shrapnels bounced off the fuselage, damaged the #2 engine and put it on fire. The other two SAS emergencies were textbook emergencies.

I heard one pilot tell about the disadvantages of those new glass cockpits. "In older days we could put black tape over all those faulty fault indicators. Now they pop up almost anywhere on the screen. We cannot black out the screen completely since it sometimes provides useful information, not just fire alarms and such". Yes, he was joking.

Faulty landing gear fault indication happens all the time on practically all plane types. But for the next fifty years it will always be something special when it happens on a Dash-8-Q400.

"Christmas tree", does that need an explanation? For seven years it was among SAS Q400 crews the nick name of the fault indicator display screen - lights all over.



Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs, Preben Norholm

The Q400 may have a glass cockpit but the gear indication lights are on the gear select panel just like the other Dash 8's. The indicators have incandescent bulbs that burn out just like other aircraft. If you get no down and locked indication on the gear select panel, open the gear alternate extension door on the floor, flip a switch and look for 3 green lights. crossfingers
