BOTHERSOME PAPERWORK. FROM THE NEMONIC OF A PILOT'S PRE LANDING CHECKLIST - BRAKES CHECKED, UNDERCARRIAGE DOWN, MIXTURE RICH, PETROL SUFFICIENT, FLAPS DOWN. FROM JUST BEFORE WW2 WHEN MORE SOPHISTICATED MILITARY AIRCRAFT WERE DEVELOPED WITH RETRACTABLE WHEELS, VARIABLE PITCH PROPELLORS AND MORE COMPLICATED ENGINES. PREVIOULSY, WITH FIXED UNDERCARRIAGES, FIXED PROPELLERS AND OFTEN NO BRAKES THERE WAS NO NEED FOR A LANDING CHECKLIST.
