On June 24, 2019, about 1025 mountain daylight time, a Piper PA-24 airplane, N5866P, experienced a right main landing gear collapse upon landing at Greeley-Weld County Airport (GXY) in Greeley, Colorado. The airplane was privately owned and operated. The pilot and passenger were not injured, and the airplane received substantial damage to right wing spar and aft bulkhead structure. The airplane was operated under 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight.

The pilot reported he had just completed a touch and go on runway 28 prior and landed uneventfully. He completed a final circuit around the pattern, intending to complete a full stop landing. On final approach and touchdown, the pilot stated everything "was good." Then the airplane's right wing dipped down and the nose veered left causing the airplane to exit the runway surface. The airplane hit a taxiway light and continued into the infield on the sough side of the runway where it came to rest.
