The airplane was substantially damaged at about 1927 Eastern time while landing. Night visual conditions prevailed. The flight instructor and private pilot were not injured.

According to the private pilot, the left main and nose landing gear extended for landing. However, the right main landing gear would not extend. An attempt was made to raise the gear, but the left main landing gear and nose gear would not retract. Upon landing, the airplane veered off the runway and came to rest in the grass. Examination revealed the landing gear hydraulic reservoir was empty of fluid.
