That man landed a 767 without landing gear smoother than I can land a damn Cessna with a 20 kt headwind

I was unable to locate the dates of this incident but have not seen it posted. If it is a repeat it is worth watching again and is actually a fair report from the media. . ( Mehr...

This took place on Nov 1, 2011. The investigation found that a hydraulic leak caused a pressure drop which prevented the landing gear deployment, and that the alternate system was inoperable due to a popped C829 circuit breaker. The breaker was reset after landing and the undercarriage extended normally. It's surprising that neither pilot checked the circuit breaker prior to landing!

Just curious, was the C829 breaker on the checkist for a gear down failure?

Trying to answer my own question, I found this:

and this which links to a second investigation report:

I think the answer is probably not- if the crew skipped that step, I'd think that would be in the report.

Captain Tadeusz Wrona (which means black bird in Polish) was the right man for the job.

To be precise: "wrona" is a crow. Anyway, it flies. :)

Both black. Different families. Blackbird Turdidae, gen Turdus. Crow Corvidae, gen Corvus. Corvids are the smarter group.

A Corvid would have checked the breaker over what a Turdus would do?

Boy Do I remember I was hoping to be on that flight as a non rev but didn't have any more business class seats. So I watched it push back from the gate. When I got a call from my wife in WAW telling me to turn on the TV

For the gear to gravity fall, the return line to the reservoir has to open otherwise you have a hydraulic lock. A Shuttle valve prevents this and should be controlled manually by a cable from the cockpit to the valve. No electrics. No circuit breakers. Just free fall and the fluid is returned to the reservoir. Voila!!

767 is still my favorite aircraft. 2-4-2 seating makes ideal aircraft for couples.

I don't think Airbus can ever match Boeing. I have flown 747, 767, 757, 737, and 727 and they all have great airmanship.

Pretty damn good job, albeit downwind!

Heard it was the K9 relay, a dog of a relay!
