Why would they stop the traffic?

And what do you mean by landing doors?

hello Doyler,

a similar incident happened in March 2004 at Mexico City (- Licenciado Benito Juarez International to an Mexicana Airbus A320-231.

He made a precautory landing as the main landing gear doors did not close.

Thanks very much great picture!!
Cros as scene in this picture the landing gear doors did not lock back up!
The police stop all traffic from entering the old airport road because of this.
A garda told me and a nother spotter that they were afraid it might over shoot. but luckly this did not happen!
After landing Rwy 16 was in use!

How would the undercarriage doors hanging down result in the aircraft overshooting? I can understand a go-around but not an overshoot.

Aidan

Frosty

i would think the the pilot tried to land as smoothly as possible in order to avoid the landing gear doors hitting the runway. doyler can probably confirm how much of the runway the pilot used in landing the 320

the last thing you want ,apart from overshooting the end of the runway, is shards of metal , not sure if the A320 doors are all metal or a combination of composit material and metal, flying everywhere and possibly causing tyres to burst or damaging the engines.

i remember it, in fact i was to meet that a/c and despatch the return to FRA. it was a hydraulic failure.( green system rings a bell ) the gear doors are supposed to stay down like that when the gear is dropped using the alternate method(gravity?) it was uneventful..... the a/c was towed to a remote stand where the pax were disembarked. one or two days later it departed ferry to FRA.

Its part of the Emergency procedures for Dublin Airport that the local Gardai have to implement in the event of an emergency. It is to prevent over/undershooting traffic from hitting cars. If it is serious enough they will shut down the M1.
