Landing gear door problem

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


An Airbus took off as normal en route from Melbourne to Jakarta.  As it started to climb out of Melbourne’s runway 34 the pilots noted that the right hand main gear door didn’t close after the gear was retracted. The crew stopped the climb at 6000 feet and returned to Melbourne for a safe landing on runway 34 about 20 minutes after they had departed.
