An Israel Aircraft Industries 1124 airplane, N112EM, was substantially damaged during landing at Cincinnati Municipal Airport, OH (KLUK). The flight instructor, pilot, and passenger did not report any injuries.
The local instructional flight departed Cincinnati Municipal Airport about 10:45.
After landing on runway 21L, the flight instructor directed the pilot to advance the throttles for a touch-and-go. During the maneuver, the left main gear collapsed and the airplane came to a stop near the end of the runway, resting on its left wing.
