Vietnam Airlines flight landing aborted after ATC flags gear failure, Melbourne, Australia

A Vietnam Airlines flight came within a minute of touching down on the tarmac at Melbourne Airport when air traffic controllers realised the plane's landing gear wasn't deployed.

So the "gear failure" was actually a crew failure?
what is vietnamese for GUMP? there are only two kinds of pilots- those that have and those that will....where is the check list, the crew concept, the expectation that when the gear comes down it gets a bit nosier , airspeed a bit more critical ?

In a B787 Dreamliner?!? This beggars belief!

Isn't there a little red light in the cockpit that tells you this? And since the landing gear wasn't deployed, wouldn't that annoying voice telling you to "pull up terrain" be deployed? Seems like a lot of basic things got missed.

London to a brick these imbeciles were chinese or chinese trained.
This incident has received minimal media coverage here in Melbourne. I wonder why? In the same week there was plenty of confusing coverage of a large aircraft that diverted from Tullamarine to Avalon allegedly because it did not carry sufficient fuel to cope with wind shear over Melbourne. Passengers remained on board while fuel was loaded and the aircraft returned the 100km to Tullamarine. Something not right here too.
