Détails:
FedEx flight FX1026, a Boeing 767-3S2FER, landed at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX/KLAX), California, with the left-hand main gear retracted.
The aircraft departed Newark Airport, New Jersey, USA at 05:10 UTC on a cargo flight to Los Angeles. The flight was cleared for an ILS approach to runway 24L. After selecting the undercarriage down the crew got an 'unsafe gear' indication and radioed to the LA Tower controller that they were discontinuing the approach.
In coordination with the Tower and Final Approach controllers the aircraft was positioned for a low approach over runway 24L to allow ground observation on the position of the left hand landing gear. A low pass was performed at 10:41 UTC but two Tower controller were not able to see if the left-hand gear was down or not. It was agreed to perform another low pass.
Vehicles were positioned along runway 24L and the flight was cleared to make another low pass at 200-300 feet.
The low pass was carried out at 10:59 UTC, after which it entered a brief holding pattern over sea.
The flight was then cleared for an emergency landing on runway 25R with ARFF standing by. This was accomplished at 11:47 UTC (03:47 LT).
Sparks were seen after touchdown, apparently originating from either the open left-hand gear door touching the ground, or the no.1 engine. No fire erupted. One pilot was injured when evacuating the airplane.
