  1. So to correct this post it is clear that this sit has failed to get all the info before this report! "This was not a Landed gear up landing" It was a gear failed landing! The gear was down and in the landing position at touch down and on the roll out the gear collapsed and sat the mk5 on it belly with miner scratches on the belly of the aircraft. Again "this was not a Landed gear up landing" It was a gear failed landing"

  2. TO up date this post 912PK was being ferried to pierce county airport at the time of the gear issue It has not been frown for a few years and the gear need to go threw annual. since then the annual has been dune and gear potion light have been installed.
    The aircraft has since flown 43.6 hours with over 70 landings and flawless gear retract and extending issues. a wonderful and stable plane to fly!
