LN3591P, a Piper PA-31, made a gear-up landing on RWY 26at KPHL.  The incident occurred at about 6:15AM local time (EST) on Saturday.  The pilot did not report any problems prior to the landing and there were no injuries to the 5 occupants.

Clip is in real time from the point the pilot reports the gear-up landing.

Gets points for a safe landing but not advising ATC prior to attempting such a landing is pretty surprising (unless it collapsed on landing).

I thought the same thing.  As far as a gear collapse, it would have had to be a pretty unique collapse to result in such an otherwise normal appearing and safe landing.

... and it seems likely the pilot would have avoided the embarrassment of bluntly calling it a "gear-up" if the gear had been extended but then collapsed. So we cannot exclude that the impossible has happened to this pilot here... Uh... And with 4pax on board. What a bad day...

Maybe he thought gear was down and no one else on the ground noticed it wasn't.

In the words of Adam Savage: "Well there's your problem!"

I think 4 out of 5 prides were injured

I think that pilot's comment at initial 'touchdown' was something like"Oh...SH&$!

Unless he was using a hand-held it sounds like the pilot stayed in the plane after there was visible smoke.  Pilots: get your passengers *and* yourselves out of - and well clear of - the aircraft immediately after any kind of crash, no matter how benign it looks.

Plane still looks remarkably good. Seems at least he had a soft landing.
Ok, all prop blades are bent and it's impossible to tell how much the engines suffered... Still, doesn't appear too bad...

Ok Everyone. I was the copilot on this flight. Time to debunk all your crazy comments on here. First off there were five people onboard. NO INJURIES. If you idiots listen to the whole record we even say that their are no passengers hurt. In fact one slept through the whole thing. We had to wake her up so she could walk off the aircraft due to the smooth landing  Next it was due to pilot exhaustion nothing more.  No Gear Failure, No collapse.  To “Dave L” the guy that said "pilots get your passengers and yourselves off the plane" Shut the F**ck up. Maybe that is what you heard in some safety briefing. It was dark when this all happened and a jet was on final right behind us. Last thing  we needed was a jet landing on the same runway and causing a actual crash. Using your head saves lives. Gear up landings should never happen but they do. The moment you say it will never happen to you is when it will.   To all the rest of you. I bet that most aren’t pilots and are lazy wanabes  that have nothing better to do than listen to pilots doing their jobs. Go jac* off and leave us alone.

I understand your frustration and believe me I'll be the first to say that speculation is never a great thing to post especially on a forum prior to the release factual information, but the tone of your post is definitely off point when compared to the others in this thread.  Many of us here are pilots and instructors with lots of experience.  There are also plenty on this forum that are not, however responding to others with respect and educating those who may have speculated incorrectly I find is far more important than going on the defense.

We all make mistakes at points in our career, we're human.  What's more important is learning from our mistakes and educating others to make sure similar mistakes are mitigated in the future to the greatest extent possible.  That said, I'm glad to hear there were no injuries in this incident and we appreciate your first hand insight on this recording.

Hmmm.  You were the copilot on the flight.  Doesn't that make you part of the crew. Are you blaming this solely on the pilot, when you acknowledge that you were the copilot?  What were your responsibilities as copilot?  I believe one would be to confirm the gear was down.  Who performed the before-landing checklist? Care to take responsibility as a copilot and part of the crew?
