Narrative:
Once airborne from the departure runway, the landing gear was selected up but the gear did not complete the up cycle and the intransit light remained on. All attempts to cycle and extend the gear were unsuccessful. During the landing roll, the landing gear collapsed. A subsequent inspection found that gear teeth had broken off the left main actuator crown wheel. Parts of the teeth were imbedded in the pinion gear.
