Not sure but think NSC may have typed LTN by mistake instead of STN?

ACG

Looks like they will be short of an airframe for a while, ACGD left wing gear failed on line up for take off out of VHHH, new gear and maybe trunion damage. Looks expensive.

The aircraft came just 2 weeks ago from maintenance at KLM.
There it got a spare landing gear, the original one is on overhaul with a french company.

Air Cargo Germany 747 Landing Gear cracked in HKG

An Air Cargo Germany Boeing 747-400, registration D-ACGD performing flight 6U-8732 from Hong Kong (China) to Karaganda (Kazakhstan), was turning onto Hong Kong's southern runway 25L for departure when the left hand main gear collapsed. No injuries occurred, the airplane received substantial damage.

Following the mishap at just before 18:00L (08:00Z) the runway was closed for approximately 10 hours causing delays of up to 70 minutes to 195 flights, the airport authority said on Tuesday (Sep 22nd).

ACG said, that the left main gear buckled causing the left hand wing and left hand engines to hang down however without contacting ground. The airplane needed to be unloaded and fuel removed from the aircraft before the airplane could be towed to a maintenance hangar. The landing gear needs to be replaced on the aircraft, that had been acquired from Martin Air only 14 days ago. The airplane had been fitted with a new landing gear six weeks ago.

um, This is a new one for me. Do 747s often have landing gear fall off? I've heard about a few engines, the odd gear door and a cargo door or two...

Seen one of those before! A QF classic -300 in FCO. IIRC it was an early -100 leg that had been installed. In that case though the no3 pod contacted the ground and completely b0lloxed the pylon.

Just a wild guess but sure it would be HAECO, with maybe an interest from a KLM rep if the leg was fitted only two weeks prior as someone has stated. Sure there's a warranty claim in there somewhere!

Thanks Flightmech for your answer. I heared that the original gear is being overhauled presently, so KLM, who is most probably responible for the present gear is more then interested in the cause for the fracture. Could you estimate how long it takes to change the wing gear on a 747, assuming availability?
Regards

About a day and a half to change a wing gear if everything is available.
