Narrative:
A Pineapple Air Embraer EMB-110P1 Bandeirante, registration C6-KMC, operating as flight PNP983 from North Eleuthera Airport (ELH/MYEH) in Eleuthera, experienced a gear-up landing at Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS/MYNN) in Nassau.
According to the pilots, the flight into MYNN proceeded as normal, up until the point of the landing rollout. The crew stated that there was an indication of “three green” which would indicate that the landing gears were down and locked. The crew further stated that the main landing gears touched down followed by the nose gear, which collapsed, then both main gears collapsed thereafter.
The aircraft travelled a distance of approximately 1,206 ft. from where it initially impacted the runway (based on pavement markings) before coming to rest. The majority of the aircraft remained on the paved, usable portion of runway 14. Damages were documented to both engines, propellers, lower engine nacelle, gear doors and bottom fuselage (forward and aft).
All occupants evacuated the aircraft immediately after it came to a stop. No injuries were reported.

Based on the evidence documented, the conclusion of the investigation team is that the aircraft made contact with the runway surface while the gear was not selected in the appropriate position for landing as required by their company’s standard operating procedures and checklists.
