An Onur Air Airbus A320-200, registration TC-OBE performing flight 8Q-5130 from Pori (Finland) to Antalya (Turkey), could not fully retract the landing gear after departure from Pori. The crew levelled off at FL100 and diverted to Helsinki's Vantaa Airport (Finland) for a safe landing about one hour later. The aircraft stopped disabled on the runway and was towed to the apron.

Emergency services reported two of the three hydraulic systems were malfunctioning causing the problem.

A replacement Airbus A320-200 registration TC-OBO reached Antalya with a delay of about 14 hours departing Helsinki at 04:00L Apr 21st.

Maintenance determined the green hydraulic system's fluid had depleted after selecting gear up following a massive leak as result of a cracked valve in a main gear wheel well. The gear doors remained open and the gear struts extended as result. No other hydraulic system was affected.

The aircraft was able to position to Istanbul Ataturk (Turkey) after 18 hours on the ground and resumed service.
