A Singapore Airlines Airbus A380-800, registration 9V-SKJ performing flight SQ-285 from Singapore (Singapore) to Auckland (New Zealand), was on final approach to Auckland's runway 23L when the crew initiated a go around after the gear had been selected down. The aircraft climbed to 3000 feet, positioned for another approach, performed an alternate gear extension and landed safely on runway 23L with all gear doors open about 15 minutes after the go around.

Ground observers reported all gear looked down and locked when the aircraft went around leaving the gear down.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 7 hours before departing for the return flight SQ-286 with a delay of 5 hours.
