When the pilot selected the landing gear down, only the nosewheel locked down. He then followed the landing gear emergency extension procedure. This resulted in the left main gear being locked down but the right gear remaining unlocked. After discussing the problem with his company, the pilot landed the aircraft with the nose gear locked and both main gear unlocked. During the landing, the fuselage underside was scraped and the left tailplane bent. An inspection revealed that a seal in the right main gear actuator had failed.
