If you notice also on the main gear we can see from the back that the side load arms are bent up in the middle. YIKES !....they were trying to retract also. You can clearly see the down-lock assembly is broken over-center as it tried to do the normal retract cycle. It's just that the main gear in this configuration won't retract sideways on the ground....thank God. Lots of damage to this aircraft though....and they ain't out of the woods yet because the main gear are in an unsafe condition. In the cockpit they are indicating amber "in-transit."

One interesting thing I noticed is coordinates on the gate. Interesting.

By the looks of it, the hydraulic system has either failed or being released. The flaperons, elevators and main gear bay doors are all down.

Finally the main landing gear is leaning backwards, which i think they should do and not forward

Looks like they put the gear up on the ground without the lock-out pins in! Notice the main gear doors are ajar for clearance as the main gear retracts.
