Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
After about 80 metres of ground roll following a normal touchdown the nose began to drop, followed by the right and left wings, and the aircraft slid to a halt with the gear retracted. No mechanical fault or defect was subsequently found with the aircraft. The weight of available evidence indicated that the pilot had probably inadvertently selected the gear up shortly after touchdown.
