Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight, crew continued the approached while the aircraft was unstabilized. On touch down on runway 07, aircraft bounced twice when the crew retracted the landing gear. Aircraft landed on its belly and slid for 600 meters before coming to rest. All nine occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
Probable cause:
Erroneous retraction of the landing gear following 2 bounces on the runway due to an unstabilized final approach and poor crew resource management.
Contributing factors were:
- Although the descent and landing checklists were followed, the crew did not review stabilized approach criteria or procedures for a possible controlled flight into terrain and did not take into consideration the possibility of any go around procedure
- several call-outs were non-standard while others were missing
- descent was continued under visual flight rules, approach was unstabilized and not detected by crew
- speed was too high on touch down while the power levers were not into idle position
- lack of corrective action on part of the crew when the aircraft was bouncing
- Loss of situational awareness led to the retraction of the landing gear.
