July 5, 2012, Mesquite, Texas, Piper PA-28RT-201 Arrow IV


The airplane was substantially damaged during landing at about 1600 Central time. The pilot and passenger were not injured. Visual conditions prevailed.
During landing gear extension, the pilot noted a flickering right main landing gear light. Subsequently, the pilot received visual report from others who indicated his landing gear appeared down and locked. During the landing rollout, the right main landing gear collapsed and the airplane departed the right side of runway, resulting in buckling of the fuselage and penetration of the firewall by the engine mounts.
