A Malaysia Airlines Airbus A350-900, registration 9M-MAF performing flight MH-1 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), was climbing out of Heathrow’s runway 27L when the crew stopped the climb at FL100 due to a main gear door not closing.

The aircraft dumped fuel over the English Channel and returned to Heathrow for a safe landing on runway 27R about 80 minutes after departure.
