That is not the normal sequence for flaps and gear extension. However
there is nothing wrong with doing this if you are in the airspeed limits
for the flaps and gear extension. Perhaps the pilot was using the gear to
more quickly slow the aircraft to the flap extend speed restriction.
Sometimes the approach to LAX requires alternate techniques to meeting the
situation at hand...
