THE captain of an airline flight to Coffs Harbour was forced to ask the tower if the aircraft's landing gear was down after a malfunction in the cockpit.
The incident happened on Qantas flight QF2108 from Sydney to Coffs Harbour earlier this afternoon, operated by a Bombardier Q400.
It is understood the pilot informed the tower the light switch to indicate the landing gear was down failed to operate as the aircraft came in for landing in Coffs Harbour on Monday around 1.30pm.
"The landing gear light in the cockpit initially failed to activate, but did so on the second attempt, and the aircraft landed normally," A Qantas spokesman said.
