Captain / Total hours on type:
Following an uneventful flight from Cannes-Mandelieu Airport, the pilot initiated the approach to Barcelonnette-Saint-Pons Airport Runway 27. Following an unstabilized approach, the aircraft landed hard, causing the left main gear to collapse. The aircraft veered off runway to the left, lost its right main gear and came to rest. There was no fire. All five occupants escaped uninjured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
The accident was the consequence of the decision of the pilot to continue an unstabilized approach, resulting in a hard landing and the rupture of the left main gear upon touchdown.
