After takeoff the landing gear gave a false indication on the gear status.
This resulted in us flying for several hours to burn off fuel before landing.

The crew will need to troubleshoot the landing gear.  If instrument
access is needed before the next range flight, PIs should be available 
in the hangar in the morning.
