Final cross check

For what it's worth, Air Niugini had the "500 feet" call. Even though a conventional checklist had been read and completed, the crew would cross check with each other that gear, flaps and props (turboprops) or gear flaps and liftdumpers (F28) were set.
I believe this was a good procedure, but I haven't seen any other operators use it.
