Scheibe SF25E motoglider, G-BHSD
After a normal approach and touchdown, the aircraft appeared to decelerate more rapidly than normal. On leaving the aircraft the pilot found that the monowheel landing gear had collapsed. An inspection of the aircraft revealed that the collapse was due to the failure of a previous poor quality repair to the landing gear swinging arm assembly.
