If, for any reason, the green GEAR DOWN
lights do not illuminate continue pumping
until sufficient resistance is felt to ensure
the GEAR is DOWN. Do not stow the
alternate extension lever, leave it in the up
6. Alternate extension lever As required.
a. Stowed if all three green GEAR DOWN
lights are illuminated.
b. Unstowed if all three green GEAR
DOWN lights are not illuminated.
e. Gear-Up Landing (Gear Up or Unlocked).
Due to decreased drag with the gear up, the tendency
will be to overshoot the approach. The center of
gravity with the gear retracted is aft of the main
wheels. This condition will allow the aircraft to be
landed with the gear retracted and should result in a
minimum amount of structural damage to the aircraft,
providing the wings are kept level. It is recommended
that the fuel load be reduced and the landing made
with flaps fully extended on a hard surface runway.
Landing on soft ground or dirt is not recommended as
sod has a tendency to roll up into chunks, damaging
the underside of the aircraft's structure. When fuel
load has been reduced, prepare for a gear up landing
1. Fuel load Reduce.
3. Loose equipment Stowed.
4. BLEED AIR VALVES ENVIRO OFF.
5. CABIN PRESS switch DUMP.
6. CABIN SIGNS switch BOTH.
7. Cabin emergency hatch Remove and
8. Seat belts and harnesses Secured.
9. Landing gear alternate engage handle
10. Alternate landing gear extension handle
11. LANDING GEAR RELAY circuit breaker
12. GEAR UP.
13. Nonessential electrical equipment OFF.
14. Flaps As required (DOWN for landing).
Fly a normal approach to touchdown.
Avoid touching down in a nose-high
15. POWER levers (runway assured) IDLE.
16. CONDITION levers FUEL CUTOFF.
17. FIRE PULL handles Pull.
18. MASTER SWITCH OFF.
f. Landing With Nose Gear Unsafe. If the
LDG GEAR CONTROL warning light is illuminated
and the NOSE GEAR DOWN light shows an unsafe
condition, try to determine the position of the gear.
This may be accomplished by a tower flyby or any
other means available.
Do not attempt a MAIN GEAR DOWN,
NOSE GEAR UP landing on a grass/sod
runway, unprepared runway, or areas
adjacent to the runway.
1. Fuel load Reduce.
3. Loose equipment Stow/secure.
4. BLEED AIR VALVES ENVIR OFF
(below 10,000 feet).
5. Cabin pressure switch DUMP (after
cabin has depressurized).
