Landing Gear-Related Mishaps

 

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

 

Specifically:  

                        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.
