Narrative:
While en route from Paris to Nice (France), the Airbus A320, operated by Air France, had a hydraulic system failure (2 / 3 systems failed to work). The captain decided to make an emergency landing and deflected to Lyon International Airport. For security reasons or because the system was not working, the cockpit team had to deploy the landing system (main and front gears) manually. Nobody was injured.
