From CADORS 2012O1588
The privately-operated Jet Aircraft Museum Canadair T-33 Mk.3 aircraft (C-FUPM) was on a VFR flight from Kitchener/Waterloo Regional Airport (CYKF) to Hamilton (JCMIA) (CYHM). NAV CANADA staff at Hamilton Tower reported that the aircraft touched down quite hard just short of runway 06 and then veered to the left into the grass, ending up about 300 feet off the side of the runway. After landing, the pilot indicated a landing gear problem. There were no injuries. Ops. impact – none. A Transport Canada Inspector advised that the landing gear was sheared off.
UPDATE Supplemental information received from T.S.B. Daily Notification [#A12O0084]: The Jet Aircraft Museum Canadair CT-133 (T-33) aircraft (C-FUPM) was on a positioning flight from Kitchener to Hamilton when the aircraft landed short of runway 06. The aircraft touched down in the grass short of the runway and the left main landing gear broke off, damaging the left wing, flaps, stabilizer and elevator. The aircraft skidded approximately 700 meters down the runway and exited off the left side of runway 06 into the infield and came to rest approximately 180 meters from the edge of the runway. The pilot opened the canopy normally and both the pilot and passenger exited the aircraft. There were no injuries.
Again, thankfully nobody was injured.
