CONCLUSIONS
The direct cause of the accident was the fracture of the inner mounting bolt of the right main landing gear.
In spite of the statement of the pilot, the IC assumes that the indirect cause of the incident was a previous hard landing during which the mounting elements sustained a greater than usual load. This load did not break or crack the mounting bolt but caused excess strain in its structure, and as a result the strength of the bolt was reduced.
