On landing, main gear collapsed causing damage to both propellers and minor belly damage. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter stated that the aircraft is still on the runway and has therefore not been repaired. However, the damage appears to be limited to the propellers, landing gear and under side of the fuselage. He believes that the gear had jammed in the partially extended position since ground observers noticed it only partially extended during approach to landing. He also remembered putting the gear down on the downwind leg after a go around to avoid another aircraft coming onto the runway during his first landing approach.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: CESSNA 310K PLT LANDED WITH THE GEAR ONLY PARTIALLY EXTENDED CAUSING DAMAGE TO THE PROPS, LNDG GEAR AND UNDERSIDE OF THE FUSELAGE.
Narrative: ON LNDG, MAIN GEAR COLLAPSED CAUSING DAMAGE TO BOTH PROPS AND MINOR BELLY DAMAGE. CALLBACK CONVERSATION WITH RPTR REVEALED THE FOLLOWING INFO: RPTR STATED THAT THE ACFT IS STILL ON THE RWY AND HAS THEREFORE NOT BEEN REPAIRED. HOWEVER, THE DAMAGE APPEARS TO BE LIMITED TO THE PROPS, LNDG GEAR AND UNDER SIDE OF THE FUSELAGE. HE BELIEVES THAT THE GEAR HAD JAMMED IN THE PARTIALLY EXTENDED POS SINCE GND OBSERVERS NOTICED IT ONLY PARTIALLY EXTENDED DURING APCH TO LNDG. HE ALSO REMEMBERED PUTTING THE GEAR DOWN ON THE DOWNWIND LEG AFTER A GAR TO AVOID ANOTHER ACFT COMING ONTO THE RWY DURING HIS FIRST LNDG APCH.
