After arrival at the destination aerodrome near the End-of-Daylight the pilot was making his second approach to land. The aircraft subsequently touched down with the undercarriage retracted and slid for 150 metres. The pilot initially reported that he had landed without selecting the landing gear down but later infered that it had collapsed when landing. A subsequent examination and engineering report revealed that the landing gear had been selected down after the aircraft had come to rest on the runway.
