Those pilots should get medals for, very simply, putting that plane on the ground safely with no loss of life. They didn't know what was up. But they did it right. Everyone made it off that plane uninjured. All laud to the crew. Thanks for a very nice vid, Allec... :)

Much ado about nothing? No explanation of why they got 4 green lights and the gear was up. Effign around with the flaps below 500'? Not at my airline. In hindsight, I know they wish they had gotten configured even earlier and / or performed a go around to figure out what was going on with the gear horn. Easy for me to say.

All because no one could install a bolt insert correctly. Heli-coils and inserts are ALWAYS installed just below the mating surfaces. P&W should have known that.

The thing that 90% of all these videos have in common are problems that solutions may have been found for if the planes had external cameras. Why are there cameras that passengers can watch on their movie screens but no a single view of the plane itself for the pilots? What exactly is the problem in which an airline can buy a plane that costs $100 million but resist spending $3000 more for 20 go-pros that might save lives? Can someone explain?

So what was the red light on the pilot's center panel? And why did gear indicator lights indicate safe gear when clearly the nose gear wasn't down? Whole bunch of "shouldas" here that I'm sure the crew was debriefed on.

It always amazes me , the lack of camera systems to verify condition or operational state of aircraft. A visual reference is much stronger and absolute than a buzzer or light indicator. In my opinion there should be 100,s of mini cameras on a aircraft , being automatically monitored by software. If the software detects a out of normal abnomally , then it is displayed for the pilot , who can then make rapid , precise , absolute judgements with more certainty. Or if the pilot has a uncertainty in any area he can access the various images from selected cameras to reaffirm his operational position. A failed down landing gear is really trivial error to miss . Alot of accidents carry the same theme where a undetected or misunderstood fault lead to confusion and delay . Images create clarity really quickly. Images could also be used as a prompt for checklists and in case of emergency images of next possible action displayed , helping to reduce checklist time and speed up corrective action.

Interesting use of MS Sim. Couple of issues: At :07sec, -INH was not flying over the Pacific Ocean at the time. An hour out of Sydney northwards it would have been over land. At 0:59 secs, the interior staircase belongs to a 747-100/200, not a -300 series which has the straight staircase. At the end of the video you report the aircraft was returned to Singapore Airlines then placed in desert storage. But the pic of the aircraft in storage clearly shows it with an Ansett-logo on the tail (9:32)

The plane has two hydraulic systems. They are powered by engine pumps and air motor driven pumps. If the hydraulic pressure drops below 1500 psi the air pumps start up and provide extra volume which is necessary during high demand events like moving the landing gear. If the No 1 engine is inoperative then the No 2 engine would provide the hydraulic power. Somebody just missed the red light on the dash saying the nose gear is not down and locked.

At the end of the day, Air New Zealand (and gov forces behind it) wanted their own monopoly of the skies. Ansett simply got in the way, hence the buyout to eliminate competition, even if it was now owned by NZ, that competitor had to be eliminated. Other notable reasons were that Ansett was uneconomical as it contained too many different aircraft under its fleet. For plane lovers, this was fantastic but for the business honchos - this was nothing but an anchor and therefore it was a failure. For the new NZ owners - the question was simple. "What country comes first? Australia or New Zealand?" ..... And so Ansett was left to oblivion. The whole town of Sunbury is testament to this fact. What once was a great place full of airline employees with nice proud houses - is now a struggling urban fringe suburb. Former pilots due to age and other circumstances (favoured NZ pilots??) were forced to accept jobs as forklift drivers. That's the way it was. Go to Sunbury and ask the locals!

They didn't have a green for the nose gear.. the FE reported "four green". The 747 has five sets of landing gear. Meaning a good-to-go call should have been "five green". So he was missing a green light, but somehow none of the flight crew caught it. It's been speculated that the Captain mistook the call as "all green".

Ah, Sir Reginald Ansett would be whirling in his grave. Ansett Airlines were sold to Air New Zealand, who then proceeded to strip Ansett of assets, and bill their fuel and servicing costs to Ansett, but not pay those bills. Ansett were placed in receivership shortly thereafter. The Australian Government of the day let it all happen. An absolute travesty.

Air New Zealand had no intention of keeping the airline as Ansett, they just wanted parts, and of course the competition removed. And they bought Ansett for basically "petty cash", Ansett was becoming a basket case. But Air N.Z. today is a very good airline, better than Shitsar, (Jetstar), who still struggle to understand what real customer service, (especially communication) is, have some terrible uninterested staff, poor rostering of crews, and if someone is off sick, the whole airline almost shuts down. (figure of speech). Mind you Jetstar does have a lot of trouble replacing absent staff.And their favorite thing they lie about...after pulling aircraft off the domestic schedules to replace one on their international runs. Telling the passengers from domestic flights who miss out...flight cancelled due to "operational issues".. Where would the airlines be without those words to use when it suits.

Why did not the captain ask the tower if the wheels were down.? I once heard that gear not down warning go off on my B747 simulator at home .My brother in law asked be what is that warning siren. I said I don't know and I ignored it , just like the crew on this real flight. Same scenario but my outcome was a lot cheaper and I am not paid $350,000 to know better. ..

WOw i remember this oe, when the workers at the ansett Maintenance plant in Tullamarine and the procurement officers and engineers were telling me the story, which is why i had secured a 500,000,00 contact to supply aerospace metals and spare parts locally, just like we were already doing for qantas, and i had to make sure that as far as the welding rods warehouse was fully compliant with CASA's requests, which is a 40 ft wall filled with plastic tubes with all types of aerospace welding wires which had to be tagged checked for quality and make sure they were all the same and the QTYS in each bag and the packaging and note tags all matched the products in each tube, which is close to over 100 different grades thickness and sizes, thank you Ansett and the wonderful engineers and support staff for the help and also Ansett australian airlines were closed down due to the main thing, which CASA would not allow, which is this: Each airlines has to go airworthiness and has audits done periodically ,which the last time they did this, they found out that servicing of the aircraft was done a lot quicker than what the official boeing or other manufacturers maintenance books stipulated, like say a complete overhaul of pratt and whitney aircraft engine should take around 100 hours, yet the ansett Maintenance staff would complete it by the book but so it quicker, everything was still done, by the book and certified 3 times by independent aircraft engine engineers, but due to the engines and other areas of the aircraft maintenance tasks being done quicker than what it stated in the official books, they closed down ansett airlines, which is to say ansett airlines was making way too much of a profit yet no mishaps or deaths has happened at all during its lifetime ? Also ended up providing ansett airlines a new data processing software for the spare parts operation which was still based in Tullamarine and was the first automated system in australia, which Qantas did not even have, basically every microfiche disc and paper trial had to be scanned 3 times and put into a system which can be cross matched for location at any time when requested, close to $250.000.00 dollars worth ?

Someone isn't owning up to their mistake. The gear indication would not show all green with an NLG un-extended. It does not take all that much pressure to unlock the gear, especially the NLG. Once unlocked the air flow would aid in it's extension. As a former FE myself, I think he screwed up and was trying to cover his ass.

As I followed along I would have done everything the same, except perhaps multiple flap selections, but when they could not override the reversers, they had no choice but to gently lower the nose.

NO.1 ADP would have provided plenty of pressure to lock the nose gear down if it were on. The FE also stated 4 greens on his panel. There should have been 5 green. I was a check/training Flight Engineer on the 747-100-200-300.

I was there that day involved in returning the runway back into operation. I even recall the aircraft rego VH INH, accurately depicted on the sim. The Ansett engineers brought out two jacks, lifted under the wings to raise the nose and manually lowered the nose wheel. The aircraft was then just towed back to the hanger. The asphalt runway surface was virtually undamaged including the runway centre lights. The runway sweeper just had to clean up some metal shavings. Certainly a serious incident but with a relatively Ok outcome.

A pilot who commits to a landing without positive gear-down indication is completely responsible for anything that follows. Don't pawn it off to your flight engineer. He is merely monitoring gauges and advising status of systems. If you are not certain of your condition, declare it and run the appropriate checklist. In the end the PIC bears full accountability.

Still too many unanswered questions here.  If the captain considered the possibility of slow hydraulic responses after shutting down the engine, maybe he should have started the landing sequence (including dropping the gear) earlier than normal to judge the response.
