So… I was flying into TNCM. ATC Approach put me into a pretty nice line up straight for the runway. I put my flaps down, flew my Q400 towards runway 10 and landed. It was a nice smooth landing but when the back gears touched the ground, It seemed different. Then I came to an very quick stop. I had no brakes on, no reverse thrust and I stopped after about 5 seconds on the ground. I became even more confused. I began to put power into the engines to vacate the runway but didn’t move. I glanced at the control buttons on the right side of my screen and immediately quit. I forgot to put my gear down, but I still ended up getting a lot of XP for how smooth it was and the wind. Has this happened to anyone? Do I share any humiliation with anyone else in front of a crowd of around seven people. :(
Did you land like 5 minutes ago?
And shouldn’t this go into #live
You’re not supposed to land with your front gear first. It’s probably because your gear got stuck in the ground.
I’ve done this stunt once at Heathrow Advanced. I didn’t put my gear down till my plane got stuck on the floor. Then tower told me to exit the runway and I quit. I learned I need to make sure I have enough altitude to do that.
No I just completely forgot to put my gear down
Yeah I did. Were you there?
rip, I saw you, I was one of the people who quited because I hate waiting ;-;
I once accidentally disengaged the AP somewhere between LAX and SAN on live. I got about 5 250kt warning after my plane nosedived.
I’ve done the exact same thing. Thought it was a good landing and everything lol. It happens.
were you behind me?.. as who ever that was did the same thing too.
Landing a CCX at a runway with 25 knot winds and 12 people holding short - Don’t do it.
Anyways, I’ve never forgot to put my landing gear down on landing, but I did have moments when I just had the most beautiful, most centerline, most smoothest landing ever, and I forgot to put my spoilers on Armed. :|
Probably not as serious, but I usually turn my landing light off after takeoff passing 1500ft and back on about 5 minutes before touchdown. Well sometimes I turn it off and forget to turn it back on when landing lol. But I’ve never forgot my gear at least on Advanced. I’ve done it a ton on PG.
#1 rule of landing you should have somthing to land on XD
But i wont make fun of ya becouse i did it like twice this month
Lol that must be somewhat embarrassing. When that happens, it’s best to just end flight, grab a slice of pound cake, and learn from your experience.
Has happened to me! Now do a quick checklist when passing 1000AGL, " speed, flaps, gear, weight and balance ".
I always have my gear down for landing, but they also happened to be down 30 seconds after take off on several occasions… 😜

Then tell me how I got 545 XP in a 45 minute flight. lol
Landing lights, at least for commercial aviation, on when entering a runway, all the way up to 10,000 feet, and then on after decending through 10,000 until you exit the runway
I’ve always wondered what the real regulation was IRL. Thanks for the tip.
