Narrative:
A Cessna 550 Citation Bravo sustained damage in a landing accident at Bremen Airport in Germany.
The aircraft departed Cannes-Mandelieu Airport in France at 16:16 hours local time. The aircraft was being ferried to Bremen to undergo a 'Phase five inspection'. On board were a captain, an engineer and a flight attendant. When the undercarriage was retracted after takeoff, the green 'gear down' light of the left hand main landing gear remained illuminated. A visual inspection revealed that the landing gear was retracted.
The en route and descent part of the flight were uneventful. At 18:22 the controller cleared the flight to land: "...wind three hundred degrees, one one knots runway two seven cleared to land."
Upon touchdown at 18:27, the left hand wing hit the runway and the aircraft slewed to the left and went off the side of the runway after about 400 meters. It came to rest in the grass.
