Well, since they got such excellent pictures of the event, I think we can assume there was either an annouced hydraulic failure or sequencer failure (a problem not unknown on P-51's).

In any case, he did an exemplary job of getting it down with mimimum damage, to judge by the "after" photos. Wink

You don't need hydraulics in an emergency, like most warbirds there is a work around

Pg 17 of the P-51 pilots manual



they will drop from their own weight

or this method
EMERGENCY LANDING GEAR EXTENSION PROCEDURE
If normal extension fails, recheck landing gear warning light by retarding throttle until landing gear warning light comes on.
At an IAS of 170, put gear handle in down position and yaw plane. Recheck landing gear warning light by retarding throttle blow 20" M.P.
If the landing gear warning light is still ON, indicating gear not down and locked, pull fairing door emergency release knob and yaw the plane again to lock gear. Then again retard throttle to check warning light.
NOTE: The warning light does NOT indicate the position of the tail wheel. If there is any doubt as to whether or not the tail wheel is down, dive the airplane a short distance and pull out with enough acceleration to down the tail wheel.
REMEMBER - THE ONLY CHECK AVAILABLE FOR THE MAIN GEAR IS THE WARNING LIGHT. USE IT!

plus you would normally feather the prop to reduce engine damage. with all four blades bent that prop was turning when it hit the ground
