Beschrijving:
The Indian Airlines Viscount touched down about one third down the runway of Colombo-Ratmalana. The gear then retracted, causing the plane to swerve to the left off the runway.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The co-pilot interfered with the controls, and initiated overshoot action without any instructions from the captain, by opening the throttles and retracting the undercarriage at the critical stage of landing just after touchdown. The action of the co-pilot, however well meant, was both unauthorized and unwarranted."
