Magnicharters Flight 585 is a regular flight from Cancún (CUN) to Guadalajara (GDL). The crew selected the undercarriage down on finals to Guadalajara but did not get a down and locked indication. They performed a fly past so the tower controllers could establish the position of the landing gear. They confirmed that the undercarriage was not fully down and locked. The flight crew then decided to carry out a belly landing on runway 28.
