It did seem off a little. The pilot definitely seemed pretty unconcerned about what was going on during the approach. High and hot, and saying he's 'satisfied', after being warned twice? Then the gear not working, or not deployed, and not letting the tower know. Then touching down, and taking off again, and not following ATC commands, and only in the last telling them that yeah the gear is a problem, and the engines are dead.

Just off, weird, all the way around. If they knew the gear was a problem, why not ascend, dump fuel, and belly land. If that's the only way to get down, it's safer than what they did, obviously. How to make a survivable situation a disaster. Bad choices, bad training, just bad... According to this video, the PIC is their 'most senior' pilot.
