NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The pilot reported that he became distracted while looking for other traffic during the final approach and "failed to lower the gear." The airplane skidded about 330 feet to a stop on the runway. The pilot reported that the landing gear configuration warning horn did not sound, but also reported that he was aware that the horn was inoperative. The fuselage sustained substantial damage. 

The pilot reported there were no other mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:

The pilot's failure to extend the landing gear prior to landing, which resulted in substantial damage to the fuselage during landing.
