Air China B767 at Beijing on July 1st 2007, nose gear retracted at terminal, 4 injuries
Last Update: March 2, 2020 / 16:57:33 GMT/Zulu time
On Mar 2nd 2020 The Aviation Herald received a very brief abstract of the investigation report in Chinese, which The Aviation Herald translates as:
CA941 is preparing to execute the Beijing-Dubai flight. The maintenance inspection found that the left main landing gear tilted and a hydraulic pipe leaked fluid. After replacing the hydraulic pipe, the landing gear was retracted and tested twice. After the test was normal, the maintenance officer removed the safety pin on the landing gear. Later, the trouble-shooting engineer discovered that there was a distortion in the installation of the hydraulic pipe. The position of the hydraulic pipe was re-adjusted and the landing gear retracting test was performed without the landing gear safety pin. Because the landing gear safety pin was not installed during the test, the nose landing gear retracted and the aircraft nose touched the ground. The incident caused damage to the lower part of the nose and the front and lower parts of the left and right engines, and wrinkles in the skin of the middle part of the fuselage. As a result of the passenger boarding process, 4 people on board were injured to varying degrees. The plane was scrapped.
