Piper PA-34-200-2, G-ELBC


The aircraft was being used for a training flight with an instructor and student pilot aboard. When, after take-off, the landing gear was selected up, the ‘Gear in Transit/Unsafe’ light remained ‘on’. After selecting the gear to ‘down’ again, the instructor observed that the main landing gear indicated ‘down and locked’ but there was no nose gear indication. The view in the external mirror showed that the nose gear was approximately half way down.
