DL 763 Landing Gear Problem? MCO

Tue Oct 18, 2005 9:26 am

I was wondering if anyone had any information about the Delta B767-300 which took off from MCO around 5pm?

We watched it climb out and around 1000 feet the nose gear finally retracted but the main stayed in position the aircraft continued to climb but made an immediate 180 degree turn south. About 20 min later we saw a Delta 763 taxing over the Juliet (“J”) bridge coming from the westside and heading east back towards Airside 4.

Anyone know what all took place?

Thanks for any info!

I'm guessing this happened yesterday.
There is a 506pm 763 depature from MCO to ATL (which left at537pm). Then we have a 763 arrival at 510pm (arrived yesterday at 522pm). Doesn't look like anything canceled or came back...
