The copilot was making an ILS approach to runway 19 at Amsterdam-Schiphol International Airport, the Netherlands. At an altitude of approximately 200 feet he decided to abandon the approach and called for gear up and takeoff power. At this instant, the captain took over the controls, called for gear down, and proceeded to complete the landing. The landing gear had not reached the downlock position and retracted during the landing roll.
