Beschrijving:
Curtiss C-46A PP-BTE had just departed São Paulo-Congonhas Airport, Brazil, when the pilot noticed that the undercarriage had only partly retracted and that hydraulic pressure was low. The flight crew elected to return to Congonhas.

Probable Cause: Error of judgment on the part of the pilot in not extending the gear by use of the emergency system.
