I had been taking instrument instruction for approximately 1 1/2 hours, with approachs the main training. We landed. The instructor left for another student. I took off from east at kansas city airport and made an approach for independence airport. Landing gear stuck half way down resulting in damage on impact. If landing gear light was in more visible spot, might have gone around and hand cranked gear down.
