A United Boeing 767-400, registration N76065 performing flight UA-53 from Zurich (Switzerland) to Washington Dulles,DC (USA), was climbing out of Zurich's runway 34 when the crew requested to level off at FL120 due to a gear issue. The aircraft entered a hold at FL120 for about 5 minutes, then the crew advised they were trying to get hold of maintenance, they'd be too heavy for landing right now hence they'd like to continue along the departure but were unable to climb above FL240. The aircraft climbed to FL200 maintaining a speed of about 300 knots over ground and was enroute at FL200 over France, about 55nm southeast of Paris Charles de Gaulle, when the crew decided to divert to Frankfurt/Main (Germany) about 230nm to their northeast reporting they were unable to retract the landing gear. The aircraft dumped fuel and landed safely in Frankfurt about 90 minutes after departure from Zurich.

The remainder of the flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.
