1997-10-03: The pilot of C-GGEN
was doing some solo touch and goes at his farm airstrip. On one of the landings, as the a/c touched down, the pilot reported that the gear folded up and the a/c settled on it's belly and slid to a stop. The pilot was not injured in the incident, but the a/c sustained damage to the propellor, gear doors and belly. The pilot reported that he does not remember if there was a "green" indication for the gear, and because he was wearing a headset at the time, does not recall if there was a gear warning horn. The gear warning horn in that a/c is not wired into the audio panel. An AME will look at the a/c to ascertain the extent of the damage. UPDATE An AME who examined the a/c found that the gear extended normally, the gear light illuminated normally, and the gear warning horn sounded normally. The a/c was lifted, and the gear showed no apparent damage. The gear was then cycled several times and no malfunction was detected.
