A Boeing 737-300F freighter experienced a collapse of the right main landing gear after landing at the Honiara International Airport (HIR/AGGH), Solomon Islands.
The airplane sustained apparent substantial damage and no injuries have been reported to the three crew onboard.
Following touchdown, the aircraft rolled out for approximately 1200 m at which point the right hand main landing gear (MLG) gave way and the aircraft collapsed onto it’s right hand engine, continuing to travel approximately 400 m along the runway, before coming to a stop.

Pacific Express uses aircraft which are in the Toll Aviation livery, owned and flown by Airwork, NZ.

Probable Cause:

An investigation has determined that the cause of the MLG failure and resultant accident was the inappropriate rework (ie, machining and re-threading) of the tee-bolt fitting and the associated installation of a reduced size nut and washer, at the last overhaul in 2004.
