An Air Guyane Express Let L-410, flight 3S-254 from Cayenne to Maripasoula (French Guyana), could not fully retract the landing gear after departure from Cayenne and and returned to Cayenne. The aircraft landed safely.

The airline explained that due to the rainy season and previous landings at deteriorated strips in Saul, Maripasoula etc. dirt had accumulated on the landing gear, which blocked the operation of the landing gear after drying.
