Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
During the roll-out after landing on runway 29, the right-hand main landing gear collapsed. The aircraft stopped on the right edge of the runway, right wing tip on the ground.

It was also established that the aircraft's crew performed a "normal" landing according to the landing procedure certified by the Austrian aviation authority, in accordance with the aircraft manufacturer's specifications. The recorded stress factors or load factors during landing were well below the design or load limit of the aircraft.

It was determined that the housing of the right main landing gear's shock absorber, in the area of the radius, at the transition from the vertical to the horizontal section of the component, was fractured or broken.
The inspected fracture surfaces in the area of this transition radius apparently showed signs of fatigue cracking.
