On August 4, 2017 about 1900 Alaska daylight time, a Beech BE19 airplane, N6523T, sustained substantial damage while landing at a remote unimproved airstrip, about 25 miles southeast of Palmer, Alaska. The airplane was being operated by the pilot as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 visual flight rules flight. The certificated private pilot and the sole passenger were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions existed and no flight plan had been filed. 

During a telephone conversation with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator-in-charge (IIC) on August 5, the pilot stated that he was landing at a remote unimproved airstrip. After touchdown, during the landing rollout he heard a "thump" and the airplane began to veer to the right. The right main gear collapsed and the airplane exited the airstrip sustaining substantial damage to the empennage and horizontal stabilizer.

A detailed examination of the main landing gear leg is pending.
