So the mantra of:

"Short final, gear down, 3 greens and 1 in the mirror" didnt work for him? Probably some Doctor out for his once a month flight.

Nice photo they picked to run with the article. I didn't realise the 210 nose gear was that big! Or that Ontario was a major Lufthansa hub!

I love the general stock photos news organizations use. I'm surprised they didn't throw in a picture of an A380 when talking about a Cessna 210

You mean that new tri-jet, the Boeing A380-600XXLR?  Wink

So if it had been an AA management pilot, would he have gotten on his cell phone to call the company?

When pilots need to communicate with other pilots flying other aircraft in situations like this, can the pilots communicate directly? Or do they just have to inform ATC who would then inform the other pilot?

Great! This is happened to me before too when I was training down in Venice, FL. There was this one Mooney that always forgot to put his gear down! when we were holding short waiting for him to land... we realised his gear was still up and told him dorectly over the radio that his gear were still up! and he would instantly put them down and touch down! its happened thrice with the same guy! freaky!

and RichM yes depending on the situation pilots can directly tell the pilot that his gear is still up or if the aircraft is still far from touch down, the pilots may inform the ATC...

If it were time critical like this was I'd just say "Cessna on final to runway __, your gear is still up". If it wasn't time critical I'd go through the tower.

I'm a huge WN fan (See: My username) but there really must have been a complete vaccum of news or something. The picture, however, was hilarious!

Capt: Checklist

FO: I checked, the list is there...

GUMP

Gas
Underwear
Mixture
Prop

Checklist complete.

Recheck Underwear after landing.

Really, now, the C210 makes such a pronounced pitch change on gear down that you'd have to be completely out-to-lunch to miss that one. I have over 1,100 hours in type, starting with the very first C210 demo in 1960, and I learned to watch out for the gear like you'd watch a cobra a foot away from your face.

I think that the picture is of a C210 with a REAL Tundra Wheel / Float combination.
Floats even with a wheels up landing!!

A new invention by a McDonald's Douglas, Boing Boing and Aerbus Burger Consortium.
