Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
On the afternoon of 13 November 2020, the pilot carried out an approximately one-hour sightseeing flight with a passenger in the Mooney M20J aircraft, registered as HB-DBU. During the landing on runway 12 of the Speck-Fehraltorf airfield, the landing gear collapsed shortly after touchdown. The aircraft skidded on the runway and came to a standstill about 400 m after the runway threshold. The occupants were uninjured, but the aircraft was severely damaged.

The collapse of the landing gear can be explained either by a too late extension of the landing gear or by a technical defect that could not be detected after the accident.
