During the landing roll, the aircraft’s right main landing gear retracted and the aircraft departed from the right side of the paved runway, damaging the aircraft. The damage sustained by the landing gear components was consistent with the right main landing gear side brace folding, as weight was transferred onto the right main landing gear during the landing. The cause of the landing gear collapse was not positively identified
