Fournier RF4D, G-AWEK
Shortly after touching down from a post-restoration check flight, the landing gear retracted and the aircraft came to rest on its lower fuselage. The incident was attributed to insufficient tension in the landing gear lever trigger spring which, allowed the lever to move out of the DOWN, causing the landing gear to retract.
