    The main undercarriage retracted just after touchdown during a touch and go exercise. The aircraft slid for 5,000 feet on its two wing tanks, and stopped still on the runway. The pilot stayed with the aircraft, and the aircraft had minor damage, which will be repaired. Damage was to wing tanks, main gear doors, ventral fins and elevators. The aircraft crashed at Skrydstrup.
