Nobody seems to have mentioned the landing gear.

News report paraphrase: 'The landing gear deployed very late.'

-Uninformed speculation hat on

Could this not suggest that problems were occuring before the normal time for gear extension? 1500ft? Or do the 777 hydraulic systems have enough accumulator pressure to raise the landing gear, assuming it is raised hydraulically?
