CentralWings flight to Edinburgh has made and emergency landing in WAW today because of a suspected landing gear failure.

It is reported that after take off from WAW at 6:40AM the pilot noted from the control lights that landing gear did not fully retract. He decided to return to WAW but since he was no longer sure if once lowered gear is really down, after requesting ground assistance (full scale fire service ready with ambulances) he flew the plane low over the airport so the tower staff could check if the gear was up or down. It was down and thankfully the airplane landed safely soon after.

It all turned out to be a cockpit indicator failure and most of the passengers decided to leave for Edinburgh on another flight (which reportedly has not departed yet).

Polish source is here with more details (nevermind the different airline on the photo):

Glad that nothing serious happened. By the way, wasn't CentralWings grounded? Or was it actually a LOT flight?
