After departure, the wheels didn't fully retract, so the aircraft then made an emergency landing on Rwy30. Aircraft landed with the gear up and all passengers and crew evacuated after the aircraft came to a stop. Good work to all involved. Thousands witnessed the incident as the Qantas A380 was about 45 minutes from arriving in Adelaide for the first time.

Good work, draging it in on one engine, the other one shut down and feathered, to minimize damage to engines and props.
The old 200s have a problem when exeeding the gear retraction speed on t/o, some linkage must have snapped preventing the extension when needed.
