Incident at Cincinati, Ohio, USA


1996-01-31: When the landing gear was selected down, there was no down indication for the left main gear. The crew conducted a low pass by the control tower and controllers confirmed that the left main gear had not extended. After numerous attempts, the gear extended but the main wheel had rotated 180 degrees. The crew was able to land without incident. An inspection revealed a 12" X 22" panel jammed in the gear. Maintenance personnel stated the part number on the panel appears to be a McDonnell Douglas part number. It is assumed that the panel was picked up during the takeoff from Toronto (LBPIA). Ops. Impact -- unknown. From a TSB Initial Notification.
