Cessna 210M Centurion, G-TOTN
The aircraft was on a short positioning flight during which the pilot was unable to successfully deploy the landing gear, either by normal control selection or by using the manual pump. The pilot elected to divert to Cambridge City Airport and made a successful gear up landing; the aircraft sustaining damage to the propeller and the underside of the fuselage. The inability to deploy the landing gear has since been attributed to incorrectly installed wiring for the squat switch on the nose landing gear. The squat switch had recently been replaced.
