Narrative:
The Shorts 360 sustained substantial damage following a gear up landing at the Kalaeloa Airport, Hawaii. Both pilots were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan was filed for the flight check flight which originated from Honolulu International Airport, Hawaii at about 18:50.
During the check flight four VOR-DME approaches were flown to runway 4R with a circle to land on runway 22L. After the fourth approach the aircraft landed with the undercarriage retracted. The aircraft rolled on the main gear, which still extends about 5-6 inches when retracted until the nose contacted the runway.

Probable Cause:
