A UPS United Parcel Service Airbus A300-600 freighter, registration N130UP performing flight 5X-605 from Chicago O'Hare,IL to Louisville,KY (USA), was climbing out of Chicago's runway 28R when the crew reported they could not retract the landing gear. The crew decided to continue to Louisville nonetheless although at a lower cruise level and a lower speed. The aircraft climbed to FL200 enroute and requested Louisville's longest runway 35L available explaining they were carrying extra fuel. The aircraft landed safely on Louisville's runway 35L about one hour after departure.

The aircraft remained on the ground in Louisville for about 15.5 hours, then returned to service.
