Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Cabinda, aircraft landed on runway 25 when all three gears collapsed. Aircraft skidded on its belly for several yards before coming to rest by the taxiway Bravo. While all 37 occupants were uninjured, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. It is not clear if the collapse of all three undercarriage is the result of a mechanical failure or a mistake committed by the crew.
