Narrative:
After landing on runway 15L on Houston George Bush International Airport, and exiting the runway via a high-speed exit, the captain noticed that the aircraft dragged to the right and more than normal power was required for taxi. The crew stopped the aircraft for investigation. On the flight engineer panel, several lights regarding the right main gear illuminated, including a hydraulic line problem. Investigation revealed that the right outboard main gear had partly collapsed, fractured and twisted. Corrosion was found in the gear strut.
