Narrative:
A Socata TB20 Trinidad came to rest on it's belly during a touch-and go exercise at Groningen-Eelde Airport (GRQ/EHGG).
Both occupants were unhurt and the aircraft's damage is substantial as the propeller is written off and engine has to be send away for shock load test.
The airport was re-opened around 16:15 after the aircraft was lifted by a crane to unfold the landing gear. Then they towed it away from the runway.

A photo of the incident suggests that the aircraft landed gear-up or the undercarriage must have folded in after touchdown.
