A French-made Sud Caravelle...a rare find in the US. United used to fly them in the 60s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sud_Caravelle That article says: " * An unidentified Caravelle model is located at the Pima Community College Aviation Technology Center, 7211 S. Park Avenue, Tucson Arizona. The aircraft has been stripped of any paint/markings, and is easily seen from the roadway that passes just west of the Center."

It's the fire trainer of Tucson Airport.

Why did you call it "Landing gear problem" ?

The link you provided describes the problem as "leaning to port." In the map and all its associated views, the port wing is barely off the ground.

According to Wikipedia, this Caravelle is used as a fire trainer. What a sad way to go out.
