    any idea why the landing gear failed? Hydraulic hose-line burst, check valve(if any) failure, seal failure?

    I was afraid it was going to be a story like the one of the T-6 in California that had donated hangar space in Livermore, but was too far for the pilot to be bothered to drive. So it was parked outside at Oakland and was soon unairworthy because of deteriorating fabric. Oooooo, it's tooooo farrrrrr!
