I think they're suposed to do that. From memory, the hydrolics that raise them start to loose pressure after a while with the engine turned off. Thats why they're down in alot of photo's of P-51's on the ground.

They are supposed to be up when the gear is down, if I recall it has to do with underwing aerodynamics and such.

I was at a airshow last year 100 p-51s there all of the p-51s had the doors down when gear was down.
