    Ouch. How did they not hear the gear warning horn going off?

    This almost happened to a Baron at TEB a couple of months back. The airfield operations sup on duty spotted it on short final with the gear up and radioed the tower to have him go around. He was probably around 200 ft. off the ground when tower called, so a few more seconds and he would have been skidding down the runway just like this schmuck in the video.

    Dude, what's that beeping noise?

    How do you know you landed gear up? It takes full power to taxi...

    LOL!

    They were probably practicing gear up touch & go's.

    I saw some speculation that they were wearing noise cancelling headsets which blocked out the alarm (though wouldn't it play through the headsets also?) Any way this is possible?
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    Sure, that sounds like a good story, let's stick with that - it sure beats "We were discussing the new bid system, and overflew our destination by 30 minutes..."

    Haha! Yeah, I suppose you MIGHT not hear it but ... I dunno. Could just be a *face palm* moment.
