    Ever wonder what would happen if someone hit the landing gear lever while the airplane was sitting on the runway?

    Well you are in for a treat

    When I hear about these landing gear failures it makes me nuts Robin.
    These ffuuccckkks don't know what they are doing.
    That's why Beth and I never fly commercial.

    Looks like a very large person was walking towards the cockpit.

    On the bright side, the lower profile makes washing the windshield easier to reach.

    As long as the airplane is not moved, nothing happens. What is done if the lever is moved, is the airplane is put on jacks so it can be raised and the gear retracted then extended again.

    But if the airplane is move, then the video shows what happens.

    This can happen when doing maintenance on the landing gear. They can disable the safety mechanism which keeps the landing gear from retracting while on the ground. Someone screwed up bad.

    It happened in Houston to a United widebody a while back with the same effect.

    Preflight checklists are a bitch when maintenance forgets to engage the nose gear interlock.

    I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything.
