While the first DH-125 production prototype was flying from Hawarden to Filton, with only the two crew aboard, the hydraulic failure warning system operated. The flight was continued to Filton where attempts to lower the undercarriage by the emergency system were unsuccessful. After a strip of' foam had been laid on the runway, the pilot carried out a wheels-up landing, without flaps. Flaps were not used because the pilot preferred the flatter attitude that he could then maintain for the touchdown, and the aircraft, which was fueled with kerosene, touched down in a flat and level attitude and a small fire appeared under the centre section as it came to rest after sliding about 900 yards. Firemen were on the scene at once and the fire was very rapidly extinguished.
