A bang in the rear of the aircraft was followed by warning lights indicting problems with the left main landing gear. The hydraulic system failed and the aircraft depressurized. The crew elected to return to Bogotá. Two touch-and-goes were carried out, but the left main gear remained retracted. The aircraft finally touched down on runway 12, veered to the left and came to rest across a canal.
