I work beside Pearson National airport..i can show you a plane every 3 minutes without gear down at that height on approach...secondly that is a pretty dangerous ( and most likely illegal) altitude for a fly by

You spelled Endeavour wrong. It`s spelled the British way to honour Captain Cook`s ship that discovered Australia and rediscovered New Zealand.

And how much do they charge for your luggage when that thing can carry the space shuttle.

I missed it, but I was laying in bed and I thought a plane was going to crash because it was so loud. I just closed my eyes and accepted my fate.

It`s bullpoo when airlines charge us for the extra luggage, When a boeing 747 can carry a space shuttle stop asking the customers for one extra baggage..

That`s cool. I didn`t know they did scheduled fly-overs. Wish I was there.

It`s a flyover not a landing, no need for the landing gear to be out.

You can find an expert on anything on IAB!

You guys know it did a scheduled low pass over several California locations, right?

It wasn`t landing, it was doing a low flyover of LA and Orange Counties, so that people could see the shuttle.

Seems like the landing gears should DEFINITELY be down at that point in the landing pattern.

My dad was a pilot. What do you mean "when they have to". They do it when they`re low.

Planes tend to have their landing gear down when they land.
