Hi Tom.
You can safely take off and land smoothely with no bombs and a light load of fuel , ie no tokyo or bombbay fuel tanks or bombs , if you get good at landings you might get away without uc damage with a light load and each tokyoo at a max of 130 gal , but at this weight the landing as to be very gentle , else the u/c links could break this gives a landing weight of about 53987lbs .
With a light load of fuel and no bombs this gives a safe landing weight of 49367lbs.
I have had to make a landing when my right gear link failed , with gear half up , could not hand crank gear either up or down , if this happens to you , then shut down and feather both engines on effected side when on finals , and do a flapless landing , as the flaps could cause you to stall , keep speed high at 130 to 150 mph and ease the good gear gently on to runway , once the good gear is on ground keep bad gear off the ground as you close the throttles till you can no longer keep the wing from dropping , as soon as bad gear touches runway the aircraft will slew off the runway towards the bad gear.
The reason for shuting down and feathering good engines on finals on the side of the damaged gear , is that these props are at some point going to hit the ground , and stationary props hitting the ground does less damage , to aircraft and engines.
