Narrative:The right main gear leg would not extend on approach. Attempts to rectify the problem failed and the aircraft landed on runway 26 with nosegear and left main gear extended. The aircraft veered to the right and went off the side of the runway. The story goes that the hydraulic system was low on fluid; the crew then poured the onboard beverages into the hydraulic system and were able to lower the right main gear slightly.
