NTSB Preliminary Report on Hawker 400A Gear Collapse Published

Accident Number: ERA24LA056  Location: Atlanta, GA
Date & Time: November 30, 2023, 13:18  Local Registration: N800SD
Aircraft: RAYTHEON AIRCRAFT COMPANY 400A  Injuries: None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Positioning

The NTSB released a preliminary report about a runway incident involving a Hawker 400 and a busted landing gear.

"On November 30, 2023, at 1318 eastern standard time, a Raytheon Aircraft Company 400A, N800SD, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Dekalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK), Atlanta, Georgia. The airline transport pilot and a commercial pilot were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 positioning flight. According to the pilots, shortly after being cleared for landing on runway 3R, they performed the landing configuration and before landing checks and no abnormalities were observed; the landing gear position lights indicated three green and no red.

A normal landing was made in the touchdown zone, but shortly after, during the rollout, there was a “violent” left yaw and directional control was lost."

"The pilot used full right rudder deflection and aileron to keep the airplane centered on the runway; simultaneously, the landing gear unsafe horn sounded. The red left landing gear light illuminated, and the left green light extinguished. The airplane came to rest about 3,800 ft down the runway with the left wing partially resting on grass adjacent to the runway. The left landing gear was collapsed, and the airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and flight control surfaces. The airplane was recovered to a secure hangar for further examination. Several components associated with the left main landing gear were damaged and were retained for further examination."
