AAIB investigation to Airbus A320-214, G-EZOZ

Inadvertent flap retraction on departure from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, 24 June 2018.


After takeoff the commander inadvertently selected the flaps up instead of the landing gear. The flight crew quickly realised the error, returned the flaps to the takeoff setting and focused on flying the aircraft to achieve a safe flight path. It was not possible to determine why the inadvertent selection occurred.
