Narrative:A Sukhoi Superjet 100-95 carried out a gear-up landing at Reykjavík-Keflavík International Airport (KEF), Iceland. The five persons on board suffered minor injuries.
The airplane took off from runway 20 at Keflavík Airport at 04:03 hours local time. The crew then flew several circuits with approaches to runway 20 as part of a certification test flight.
At 05:10 the airplane was positioned for an approach to runway 11 to perform a series of cross-wind approaches. The airplane overflew the runway and flew a wide circle over sea for another approach.
The purpose, prior to the event, was to perform a low pass/missed approach with one engine shut down, close to the airplane‘s maximum weight limit, in cross wind condition. During the approach and the low pass, the landing gears were in down position. During the go-around procedure, and after the landing gears were retracted, the airplane descended with the result of landing at the runway with the landing gears up. The aircraft skidded down the runway and stopped outside the end of the runway.
