While preparing for landing, the pilot was unable to extend the left landing gear. After a number of attempts to rectify the situation, the pilot made a successful ‘wheels-up’ landing. Investigation indicated that the difficulty in extending the gear had been due to a combination of a stuck microswitch and a slightly bent gear leg.
