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 said he was distracted by what he thought was an aircraft radio failure, his inability to immediately locate the windsock, and an air show in progress at the destination airport. He did not go through his normal GUMPS check, forgot to lower the landing gear and landed wheels up.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot's failure to lower the landing gear. Contributing factors were the pilot's attention being diverted, and his failure to use the BEFORE LANDING checklist.

According to the pilot, he was distracted by what he thought was an aircraft radio failure, his inability to immediately locate the windsock, and an airshow in progress at the destination airport. He stated that he did not go through his normal GUMPS check, forgot to lower the landing gear and landed wheels up. There was damage to the left wing and flap, but the scraping on the bottom of the fuselage exposed and substantially damaged several bulkheads.
