I have just been out in the back garden putting some washing out to dry on the line and I noticed that circling in the Biggin Hill Stack, was a British Airways A319/20 with the landing gear already down... I got my binoculars out to double check that I wasn't seeing things and sure enough the gear was down whilst circling! I watched for about 5 mins then the plane came out of the stack and headed towards LHR.
I have never seen that before, which is why it caught my eye!
Anyone with any ideas as to why the gear would have been down so early??
