    8 seconds is gear down cycle time, traveling at 120 feet per second, he would burn up 900 feet of runway once selecting gear down.

    He got the gear down and locked, landed ,with a little drama. Bet he remembers the gear next time.

    Did you try making it your avatar?

    You're welcome! I was messing with gif stabilization anyway and saw your avatar and thought that it just didn't do him justice to be stuck in one frame :D

    Half of my desktop is variations and failed stabilization of Ted. :rofl: Glad you like it!

    "What is that noise?"
    I'm guessing he touched down before the lights were green after the switch was made.
