When hydraulics used to operate undercariage are damaged, then undercarriage should drop out from wheel well and ofcourse affect flight dynamics. One often reads of this happening during dogfight. (My appologies for uppercase in previous post)

BTW i don't know if the hydraulic system is needed to keep the wheels in the wings, i believe they are linked once they are in.
Problem would be to get them out, i guess.

TIM TIM TIMAAAH!

Seriously though, they were locked up, but you're also right that there is guncam footage of the gear falling out. Maybe some planes had a hydraulic lock, as opposed to a mechanical one.

serious, now people he has a nice point.

Over and over you will read veterans discribing that landing gear dropped from A/C they had hit.
There is even camera gun evidence existent.

Depends on the plane, don't it?

And if you're in a shot-up plane needing to bail but going too fast,
what might you do to slow down? It's also a good way to signal that
you're out of the fight or force the enemy to either pass or lose aim.
All of those and jump comes to mind.....

Don't forget, it was also used as a sign of surrender to the attacking pilot, so the emergency release handle was used deliberatly. There would be a mechanical uplock on all landing gear.

Even if the gear is locked, you can always damge the locking mechanism too... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
