Narrative:
Substantially damaged 3/9/2015 when made a wheels-up landing at Fairoaks Airport, Chertsey Road, Chobham, Woking, Surrey. According to the following extract from the official AAIB report into the accident:

"After selecting the landing gear to down, the right main landing gear failed to extend. After several further attempts, the pilot returned to Fairoaks and performed an intentional wheels up landing. Subsequent examination identified that the right main landing gear wheel well aperture was slightly undersized and as a result of a slight bend in the right main landing gear oleo and a displacement of the gear attachment bracket this caused the gear to become jammed in the wheel well".

Damage sustained to airframe: Per the AAIB report "Engine shock-loaded and propeller, engine and exhaust damaged
