Narrative:
Upon landing of the plane, the landing gear collapsed. There were no personal injuries. Damage to propeller and lower fuselage was sustained

UPDATE: The following is an extract from the official UK AAIB report into the accident...

"It was intended to fly the aircraft on a delivery flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Sao Paulo, Brasil. The first leg of the route was from Fort Lauderdale to Providenciales, where the aircraft was to be refuelled.

After a normal approach to Providenciales, the aircraft landed with the landing gears retracted, sliding on its belly for an estimated 100 feet. The pilot reported that he omitted to extend the gear before touchdown. It is uncertain whether the audio warning, which should sound if the throttle is retarded to a low level without all three gears being down and locked, was serviceable".
