QF757 DRW-ADL I think it was a B763 had a problem with the landing gear indicators. Not sure of details, but presumably the nosewheel didn't show as down and locked.

What interested me was the passengers assertion that the pilot told them to prepare for a "crash landing". I very much doubt this. I think that it probably was "emergency landing" and people translate in their heads.

"Ladies and Gentlemen we have a minor issue on the flight deck with an indication of a possible malfunction in part of the landing gear. More than likely there is no fault however as Qantas values your safety we are going to prepare the cabin for an emergency landing merely as a precaution. We will be landing in 5 minutes and I will get back to you after we have landed. Thank You for your cooperation and I will now ask you to give your full attention to the cabin crew who will assist you in making precautionary safety preparations. Thank You"

Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....

"There were fire trucks everywhere, flashing lights, the whole "catastrophe"" - and this coming from the mouth of a university professor!!! Sensationalism at its best. Not even the press need to top that one.

remember the t shirt "I own an airline"on the front - "qantas" on the back

Can't blame them really. Being a self professed, "plane crash survivor" carries a lot of street cred and is no doubt a hit with the ladies

Perhaps they should write a book about their experience and the long, painful years of anguish and recovery?

Busy day or so for Adelaide! This 'issue', then a birdstrike this morning and an Orion with a PANPAN this afternoon.
