B733 from Jettime flying from Billund to Lanzarote developed an indication of a MLG problem. Diverted to Copenhagen for a "Standby 3" landing taking advantage of the supperior facilities here. Landed normally.
Technicians are investigating the problem. If it lasts more than two hours to correct the fault, then another Jettime B737 will continue the flights from Copenhagen.
One must wonder just how hysteric the press can become.
Maybe some exopert can tell us exactly what a "Standby 3" situation is. How much worse it is than a blown bulp in a green landing gear indicator.
Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs, Preben Norholm
