A Beech A100 operated by Propair, under the call sign PRO100T, was on a training flight from Rouyn-Noranda Airport (CYUY), QC to Val-d'Or Airport (CYVO), QC. After taking off from CYUY, the aircraft proceeded to CYVO and made a first stop-and-go on runway 18. After take-off, the crew made a left turn to execute the DME arc for the ILS approach to runway 18. During the approach, the landing gear was lowered and the illumination of the 3 green lights indicating that the landing gear was down and locked before touchdown was confirmed. A few seconds after touchdown, the gear collapsed on the right side and then on the left. The aircraft skidded off the runway and came to rest in the snow about 50 feet from the edge of the runway on the east side. The 2 pilots were able to evacuate the aircraft without difficulty and were not injured. No fire broke out, but the aircraft sustained substantial damage. Examination of the landing gear revealed no anomalies and showed that the landing gear locking system was in the unlocked position and that retraction of the landing gear had been initiated when the collapse occurred.
