Who cares, just don't over speed them, and don't wait too long. "TOO LOW, GEAR. TOO LOW, FLAPS" is little too late.

I have to admit, flying at altitude in a part of the world that seems to like tailwind approaches....

I'm mostly using flap 10 to help keep the speed in check on at least on approach each day. The SFP can be a pain on those occasions......

Just something I read in the FCOM.


None of the answers is fully correct.Imagine that you don't wait and you get one red landing gear light.What's your next action? Check-list to try to solve the gear problem.Where is your flaps:15. Which one offers more drag and consequently, more fuel consumption: Flaps 5 or flaps 15? Think about it and you'll see that Boeing is not stupid.There's a board of very experienced pilots preparing the procedures with caution and logic.Take care and follow what's written properly.
