Narrative:
The Beechjet 400A, N425BJ, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM), Alabama, USA. The two pilots were not injured.
According to the pilot, after extending the landing gear he did not receive a positive indication that the left main landing gear was down and locked. After emergency procedures failed to extend the gear, the pilot elected to shut down the left engine and land with the left main landing gear retracted.
Initial examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed substantial damage to the left wing and that the left main landing gear door would not open.
