Landing Gear-Related Mishaps


LGRMs from known mechanical causes, not included in the table above, average roughly 10% of the total number of LGRMs.



                        Year                Known Mechanical      

                        2000                        10 reports

                        2001                          6 reports

                        2002                          0 reports

                        2003                         13 reports

                        2004                           6 reports 


It's quite likely that post-investigation repair and claims adjustment has found maintenance and fatigue issues that contributed to a large number of the "gear collapse" mishaps.
