14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Wednesday, August 09, 2017 in Cairo, IL

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 airplane touched down during landing with the landing gear retraced and skidded to a stop in grass about 140 ft. past the end of the runway threshold. The pilot reported during a telephone conversation with the NTSB investigator-in-charge that, "it was a simple gear-up landing, I forgot to put the [landing gear] switch down." He added that he was not wearing noise canceling headphones and did not report any preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The left wing sustained substantial damage. 

The pilot reported in the NTSB Pilot/ Operator Aircraft Accident/ Incident Report, "no accident, as specified by NTSB for gear up landing, is admitted."
