The ATSB is investigating an aircraft configuration incident involving a Boeing 737, freighter aircraft registration VH-XMO, near Sydney Airport, New South Wales, on 27 January 2021.
On final approach to Sydney the aircraft crew received an Electronic Ground Proximity Warning System alert, because the aircraft landing gear had not been selected down. The flight crew conducted a go around and the aircraft subsequently landed without further incident.
The evidence collection phase of the investigation will include interviewing the pilots and reviewing recorded flight data.
A final report will be released at the conclusion of the investigation. Should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify relevant parties so appropriate safety action can be taken.
