I was catching up on my backlog of magazines at the weekend, and in one of them was a short news piece about a 747 that was getting wheeled out of BA's Cardiff maintenance facility, when someone inadvertently retracted the undercarriage. The result was $1million repair charge. I am rather amazed that this is possible, given that there are all sorts of interlocks between the undercarriage and other aircraft systems. Does anyone know more about this incident in particular, and this kind of scenario in general.
