A Qatar Airways Boeing 777-300, performing flight from Dhaka (Bangladesh) to Doha (Qatar) with about 350 people on board, could not fully retract gear.

Aircraft was in the initial climb out of Dhaka’s runway 14 when the crew stopped the climb at 5000 feet due to abnormal gear indications suggesting the gear doors on the main gear struts did not close.

The aircraft entered a hold while the crew worked the related checklists, climbed to 8000 feet burning off fuel and returned to Dhaka for a safe landing on runway 14 about 90 minutes after departure.
