Some people have posters on the walls of their hangars

U206. You can see the utility door back right with step and wind deflector for the sliding door (Parachute ops).

Looks like a Soloy. Didn't think there were any in Australia?
Looks like the World's ugliest 206 in the world's shittiest hangar at Singleton.

Horatio I don't care how ugly it looks, it would climb like a bat out of hell compared to a piston 206

Yep, I think this might be the only one ???

Bit harsh, but you picked the correct aircraft.
Dr Oak, yes, it's CZR.

Exactly

Kris, if that is your hangar (with the Twotters) I am very jealous!

I would say that was an EGPWS save!!! At 400 ft or therabouts the GIPWIZ would be saying, "To low gear", or a similar warning which under normal company policy would require a go around but those guys took it in their stride.

A zoom lens can be very deceptive!

Based on the time to touchdown, the gear started down at around 700'.

Don't know what their SOP's are. I normally have the gear down by a thousand!

40 seconds to TD. Agree with Fathom...>400'

Fuel savings at its peak

It would be embarrassing if it was the tower that told them to put the gear down. I recall a tower controller at YMMB telling me of his proud record of no gear ups ever whilst he was on shift (over many years).

400 ft +or- depending on slope divided by 40seconds is around average 600 feet/min. The last few seconds the rate of descent is negligible allowing the approach rate of descent to be up around 700 ft/min and as I said we can't see if there is any slope on approach.

That sounds very much like time for "Too Low Gear" to me, or a "shit gear down", maybe just prior to the CAWs

It's nowhere near 700ft. Too Low Gear comes on at 500ft, plus a couple of seconds for "WTF?!" and then down she goes. Renurpp's close at 400ft; 35secs at 700ft/min, I reckon.

Using both RoD and trigonometry the altitude was about 460ft when the gear was selected down. Based on that I would guess they got a mode 4A warning, i.e. “Too Low Terrain” at 1000 ft RA then a mode 4B warning “Too Low Gear” at 500ft.

Wouldn't they have had the "too low gear" when they selected landing flap? Assuming that they had of course and I don't pretend to know anything about the MD...
