Beschrijving:
The Metro III prototype aircraft departed San Antonio (SAT) on a routine test flight to evaluate a prototype propeller design. The gear were retracted after lift-off, but the right main showed 'unsafe'. A visual check by the co-pilot showed that the gear was up and doors were closed tight. After completing the planned tests, aircraft returned and began the approach, but the right main failed to extend. Several hours were spent burning off excess fuel and trying all means to get the gear down without success. It was finally decided to land with all gear up and both props feathered to minimize damage.
