Summary

Summary

The aircraft was making an approach to a gravel surfaced strip in CAVOK, light wind conditions with no turbulence. The pilot reported that full flaps were extended and a final approach speed of 75 knots was maintained until touch down, which was slightly short of the strip threshold. The right main wheel struck soft ground, dislodging the right main landing gear. As the aircraft continued onto the strip the remaining landing gears were also dislodged, resulting in major damage to the aircraft. All four occupants were able to exit the aircraft safely.
