763 Gear Up landing in Warsaw

A LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration SP-LPC performing flight LO-16 from Newark,NJ (USA) to Warsaw (Poland) with 230 people on board, was on approach to Warsaw's runway 33 when the crew aborted the approach at 3000 feet reporting an unsafe gear indication for all three gear struts at about 13:10L (12:10Z) and entered a holding to troubleshoot the problem for about 80 minutes. Visual verification by fighter aircraft showed none of the gear struts was down, attempts to lower the gear alternatively failed. The aircraft subsequently performed a text book gear up landing on runway 33 at 14:40L (13:40Z), the aircraft was evacuated after stand still. No injuries occurred.
