Incident: Sunstate DH8D at Sydney on Jul 12th 2021, crew did not retract landing gear


A Sunstate Aviation de Havilland Dash 8-400 on behalf of Qantas, registration VH-QOY performing flight QF-2213 from Sydney,NS to Albury,NS (Australia), was climbing out of Sydney when the crew working the after takeoff checklist did not retract the landing gear. Only later in the flight while enroute at FL240 the crew discovered the gear was still down, verified it was safe to retract the landing gear and decided to return to Sydney for a safe landing about one hour after departure.

The aircraft remained on the ground in Sydney for about 16.5 hours before returning to service.

Australia's ATSB opened a short investigation rating the occurrence an incident.

Easy way to tell if there are any pilots in the room: just yell "Positive Rate!"

All the pilots will instinctively call out, "Gear up!" -- except these two, obviously.
