A Tupolev 134 of Malev Hungarian Airlines sustained substantial damage in a landing accident at Amsterdam-Schiphol International Airport (AMS), the Netherlands.
After a normal touchdown the right hand main gear slowly retracted, causing the right hand wing to strike the ground. A fire developed as the wing tip was dragging on the runway. This fire was quickly put out by the flight crew and further contained by airport fire services.

Probable Cause:

The right hand main gear was not properly locked down as a result of a faulty valve of the hydraulic system.

Hydraulic system problem
Landing gear collapse
Runway mishap
