Virgin Atlantic 747 Makes Emergency Landing After Gear Failure

A Virgin Atlantic 747-400 made a successful emergency landing into Gatwick airport after a gear failure. Shortly after takeoff, the Las Vegas bound jet experienced a gear problem, and the right outboard main landing gear was stuck in the retracted position. After circling Southern England for approximately 4 hours to troubleshoot and burn off fuel, the 747 touched down safely at Gatwick.

Thanks to the pilots and crew, everyone made it out safely.
