UAL YSSY Incident

Scant details but looking at the gear doors, and the state of the gear, would hazard a guess at hydraulic failure.

To me it looks more like impact damage to the gear doors, which would suggest a burst tyre with fragments hitting the plane, also given the missing tyre.

 

What makes you think hydraulic failure?

the open gear doors. In another shot I saw the nose gear bay doors were open but could be unrelated. It appears the tyres burst on takeoff, the aeroplane dumped fuel and returned to land, where the tyres were effectively shredded. Possible locked brakes?

looks to me like a burst tyre has caused the other tyre to go and the shrapnel rubber has done the damage
