Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
Iran Air flight 215, a Fokker 100, suffered a failure of one of the hydraulic systems. Consequently, the main undercarriage could not be lowered. Even manual attempts to deploy the undercarriage using an emergency procedure proved fruitless due to a technical failure (seizing) on the landing gear door up-lock mechanisms.

The flight crew then performed a main gear-up landing at Tehran-Mehrabad Airport, Iran. There were no injuries and there was no fire.
Investigation results show that the aircraft had suffered hydraulical issues on prior flights.

The aircraft involved accident due to the main gear up landing on the runway. The Aircraft Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) determines that the accident took place due to a combination of failures in hydraulic system and L/G manual extension.
The investigation revealed that the contributive factors in human failures were as:
- Not following procedures
- Ineffective maintenance
- Pilot nonstandard action to HYD #1 pump fault light based on QRH on previous flight IRA.214
