Great video with a bit of a critical error. One you would think you'd check 100's of times Rolling Eyes

A 'bit' is almost a whitewash Jon. The pilot is supposed to retract the landing gear after take-off to reduce drag even when the wheels are hardly visible.

If I understand your question ... I would call it an unforgiveable neglicence rather than a mere mistake.

I would call that a critical error. It must have been quite a surprise when the plane flipped, he made such a nice approach.

It looks like a mistake. Some of the clips on the site this came from have more information on them as to why it happened, some even have the NTSB report. This one didn't have either.

You have to admit though, it was a short landing. Wall Bashing ROFL
