Regarding the open main gear doors I'd say it's an hydraulic failure.

Yes, the details are as follows: he was drinking coffee in the terminal, heard a loud noise, and when he boarded his plane, he took this picture. How could he possibly know anything else?

Open landing gear doors ain´t a sign for a hydraulic failure. You can easyly open them with a handle, they will free fall open then. You can close them when you simply turn on the hydraulic system responsible for the gear doors to close them then. At least that´s what I know about Airbus, Boeing shouldn´t be much different. So, open landing gear doors on ground are not neccesarily a sign for a hydraulic failure, in the air it´s different of course.

Not sure, but the pilot they blamed for an air India crash a long time, actually retracted the landing gear of a plane on the ground by accident, how you would do this is beyond me, that dose sound impossible, but it said it caused millions of dollars in damages to the plane!
