Beech B58 Baron, G-OSDI
Whilst landing at Leicester Airport, the pilot was unable to obtain a green ‘down and locked’ indication for the right main gear, despite several reselections. During the landing roll the gear collapsed at relatively slow speed and with minimal damage. Examination of the aircraft showed that both main gear uplock rollers had seized and this has previously been recognised as a cause of main gear ‘hang ups’. A similar accident in this Bulletin (Beech A36 Bonanza, G-CDJV) contains a diagram of the main landing gear system.
