JetStar Pilot forgets to lower the landing gear

Yup, you read that right. The pilot of a JetStar flight to Ballina Airport NSW forgot to lower the aircraft’s landing gear on landing, causing a go around.

Reminds me of my good old IF newbie days 😂

This incident reminds me of the Vietnam Airlines air raft that forgot to lower their landing gear too!

If only those pilots had IFAssistant. TOO LOW GEAR! 😂

If only they had feature like in IF that they don’t get altitude callouts if gear is not down. 🤦‍♂️

It would show on the ECAM as:
Landing Gear…Down (Blue) LDG INHIBIT
Then
Gear Not Down (Red)
they most like missed the “ECAM memo, landing no blue” check on the landing checklist, or completely forgot the checklist
@FBWFTW do the CEOs have an aural warning?

Ah yup, that sounds better, but that begs the question of how they could miss the gear handle being up, and the ECAM
