Captain Ron - since you're our resident pilot I have to ask - just how absorbed in the texting do you have to be to 'forget' landing gear??
So, let me get this straight, the pilot failed to put the landing gear down because he forgot, didn't realize it till 400 feet from the runway, and all this from doing something that they tell passengers not to do on a plane?
