A Beechcraft Super King Air sustained damage in a landing accident at Lima-Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM), Peru. The aircraft was engaged in a local training flight. After completion of the flight, the aircraft was prepared for landing. The undercarriage was selected down but the indicator lights show the left hand main landing gear was not locked. After fly-by of the control tower, the controller reported that the landing gear was down.
The crew requested holding west of the airport to perform emergency gear unloading procedures. After performing the checklist procedures, the left main gear light still did not show down and locked. After landing, the left undercarriage retracted until the left wing touched the runway and caused the aircraft to leave towards the left side of the main runway at taxiway B.
