Jetstar first attempt to land aborted on suspect of pilot sending SMS before landing

A Singapore-bound plane Jetstar flight from Darwin aborted a landing at Changi airport in the early hours of May 27 after receiving an "incorrect configuration warning" because the plane's landing gear was not in place. The incident happened when the plane, carrying 167 passengers, was just 122 metres above the ground. The pilots performed a second run and managed to land safely shortly.

According to Australian media, air safety authorities are investigating the text messaging claims as part of a probe into the aborted landing of the Jetstar flight JQ57.
