Narrative:
The aircraft’s right main landing gear (MLG) leg was damaged following a normal landing at Fowlmere Aerodrome. Investigation of the failed MLG leg revealed a manufacturing defect that caused the progressive delamination of the leg during service. The aircraft manufacturer is currently certifying a strengthened MLG leg design and has incorporated improvements to the manufacturing process of the MLG intended to prevent recurrence.
