Anybody know what the repair bill for that would be? I guess ATC wasn't looking either, could have warned him, or maybe a malfunction?

Maybe it had a good wax job.

Dinged the airscrew and a bit of paint scrapped off the bottom... otherwise appears to be in tiptop shape!!!
Greg Byington
Yeah, that will all just buff right out! ;-)
Dwight Hartje
I see nothing...

Why is that pesky warning horn going off?

Why is that pesky warning horn going off for.....

With the prop curled forward it looks like a go around was thought of.
Bernie Behling
Odd that only two tips are curled, and curled forward at that. I wonder what caused that?
Todd Baldwin
What is the first thing you should do after making a gear up landing? Move the gear handle to the down position.

Mr. Peter F. Hartmann, Esq. >>> I don't have any hours in a T-210. As a matter of fact, I don't have any pilot hours in anything... but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express about a week ago.

It would appear, sir, that you've inadvertently stumbled into the "Photo" section of FA while trying to make your way back to the "Squawk" room. Don't recall any requirements for flight hours or type rating to sign up in here... just sharing a love of aviation photography.

On a side note, it would appear that the pilot walked away from his aircraft... which qualifies it as a "good landing". Heck, that might even be him standing behind the port wing!!!

cliff731, you just made my day…hilarious!

Cliff-that is the best photo comment ever.... :)

Damage History ...NONE
...and MX logs...in the trash now.....
.No data before 2016..Hmmm is that how it works?

Well said, Cliff! And I also like the "up-ness" factor/theory. I worked at an FBO many years ago when a 210 flew in late one night, and the pilot forgot to put the gear down. He suffered from the up-ness factor, too. As far as appearance goes it didn't look too bad. The props were curled up, and the belly was scraped pretty bad. But they also had to tear the engine completely apart to check the crankshaft to make sure it hadn't been bent. Very expensive! In this case (I do have a few student pilot right-seat hours in a 210.) I feel pretty safe in saying that the pilot either couldn't put the gear down, or he forgot to put the gear down. Regardless, he got it on the ground "safely." So, that's a good thing.

I also have a question for you, Mr. Hartmann: Are you somehow related to Erich Alfred Hartmann (1922 – 1993)? (For those who don't know, Hartmann was "a German fighter pilot during World War II and is the most successful fighter ace in the history of aerial warfare.") He was a great pilot. Just curious.

Thanks, Mark and Dave... I do appreciate your very kind words and I'm glad you caught a good laugh there!

We aviation photographers are a "gnarly" bunch, you know... just liable to say whatever pops in our brains... :-)

I've greatly admired your photos too that both of you have taken and uploaded on the FA site. I hope to see many more here!
cliff731
Thanks to you too, Greg... and you also have some amazing photos posted on this site!

Yes, Peter Hartmann's "up-ness" factor/theory of the earth had me going for a second or two... I like that also. I've heard that one at least once in the distant past. Might be true, huh?

Of course, the possibility exists that our guy Hartmann's wit is so completely dry it escaped me... and he's pulling our collective legs here... which if true, such bounced off my thick skull and an apology would be in order... :-)

Looks to me like it just wouldn't come down. Seeing how only two of the three props are slightly bent.

Gotta love people who upload pictures with so much detail and effort put in to the description and information...

Didn't have to watch his step when he got out

Oh Great, low-rider airplanes now...

Looks like it might be an uncontrolled airport with Unicom. And so much for Before Landing Checklists.....
Jim Drummond
Time to ring that tow truck.

An experiment in flying Back to the Future? Is that Marty standing there??
Jorge Pimentel
Conversa?
ncpilot
Had power and was trying to take off again. Tips bent forward.
cyberjet
Look more closely and you will see that all three blades are bent forward.
John Van dyke
Been there, done that. Albeit with an amphib. Belly landed my Lake Regade at Seletar Airport, Singapore in the 90's. Less than $10,000 damage,
