Descripción:
Taxiing to the runway for a departure to Paris, the left main gear unsafe alarm sounded. The crew elected to return to the parking area. While taxiing back, the left main gear retracted, causing the no. 1 engine to strike the ground. A fire broke out in the vicinity of this engine and the aircraft was quickly evacuated.
PROBABLE CAUSE: A crossing of the flexible tubing of the hydraulic connection controlling the locking of the left gear.
