A Singapore Airlines Airbus A380-800, registration 9V-SKF performing flight SQ-861 from Hong Kong (China) to Singapore (Singapore), was climbing out of Hong Kong's runway 25L when the crew could not fully retract the landing gear. The crew levelled off at 5000 feet and decided to return to Hong Kong for a safe landing on runway 25R about 40 minutes after departure.
Singapore Airlines confirmed gear problems reporting the aircraft carried about 400 passengers, who are now being rebooked onto other flights. Engineers are examining the aircraft.
