A JAT Boeing 737-400 operating the morning BEG-CDG service made two aborted attempts to land at CDG after the main landing gear failed to lock into position.

The aircraft made two low fly pasts to establish the condition of the undercarriage, landing on third attempt with emergency services on stand-by. The whole ordeal lasted almost an hour above Paris. Emergency services, namely firetrucks, did attend to the aircraft on landing. The aircraft YU-AOS was isolated for an inspection on a remote taxiway before being allowed to taxi-in to the gate.

All ended well fortunately.

The classics should have a reference viewing window in the aft cabin floor to view the Down & locked position of the MLGs.
Probably an Indication error,hence the Green lt did not illuminate.

Think of the brighter side!
