  1. Listening to ATC recording, seems like flight diverted for electrical system problems. Would electrical problems cause gear to fail?

    1. Yes, the gear on a 310 are electro-mechanical operated. There are many failure points electrically in the gear system from the fuse box to the motor actuators. However the gear has a manual extension crank in the event of an electrical failure. The question here is was that even attempted?

    2. May not have understood that gear wouldn’t work with the electric problem. May have thought gear would come down with lever manipulation if he/she didn’t understand the gear system. Any other indications that gear is up/down other than lights?
