According to the pilot, during the landing roll, he inadvertently raised the landing gear handle instead of the flap handle. The landing gear retracted, and the airplane impacted the runway, resulting in substantial damage to the fuselage. The pilot did not report any mechanical anomalies that would have precluded normal operation prior to the accident.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot's inadvertent retraction of the landing gear on the runway, which resulted in a landing gear collapse.
