A FlyBE plane with 3 wheels
Set off for Inverness
But had to turn back home again
And land with one wheel less

What do we Yanks need to know in order for this to be understood?

Cheers, Bev
I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I lock
every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there
picking the locks, they are always locking three.

There's an old rugby song that starts:
Four and twenty virgins came down from Inverness
And when they all went home there were four and twenty less

Very rude version here, NSFW

Oopsie. Didn't something like this happen to a big passenger jet
recently? I remember -- nosewheel-down light didn't come on, so they
did a flyby of the terminal to find out if it was actually down or not.
Or was that a movie?

It happened to my RAF Jet Provost training instructor. One morning he
told me that he wasn't going up with me and sent me off to do something
solo instead.
After about half an hour in the air I realised that I kept hearing my
instructor's call sign so I listened in while he was being asked for
fuels states etc. Then there was a general call for all other aircraft
to either land immediately or divert. I was near the airfield so came
home, jumped out and asked what was going on.
Apparently they were doing circuits and on one of them did not get 3
green lights to show that the landing gear was down and locked. They did
a fly-by and confirmed that one wheel was still up, so they burnt off
fuel and then came in for an emergency landing.
The touch down was superb - all wheels up to prevent cart-wheeling and
he held it about 6" off the tarmac until it stalled on. As soon as the
speed dropped a bit the canopy opened and the 2 figures were on the wing
and dropped off as soon as it was safe.
Not sure if the plane ever flew again, but there was no fire or obvious
damage apart from the scrapes.
Afterwards I learned that my fellow (Malaysian Air Force) student wasn't
at all worried about the situation but was very keen to eject for the
good experience

Was HE on the plane? Some people can always see the bright side of any
experience. We need to beat the **** out of those people...

Yes, we was the other student I shared an instructor with.

He'd probably regret banging out now as it usually leaves survivors with
spinal damage.

Earlier in training we all went on a Martin-Baker test rig with only a
one third explosive charge in and even with close attention to tightness
of straps, sitting position, lumbar pad etc (time you wouldn't have in a
real emergency), it was very painful, but no lasting damage.

Yes, we gathered that.
