Narrative:
The aircraft was engaged in a practice glide approach for landing, with the throttle in the closed position. Sink developed late on the approach with the airspeed reducing, and full power was applied. The aircraft touched down about two metres short of the runway in a soft area. As the aircraft rolled forward the wheels contacted a 'step' at the start of the runway. The contact with the 'step' caused the main landing gear legs to collapse and the aircraft slid to a stop.
