Saw a post from Ivan vd Schaar this morning that he was test flying ZS-TRR this morning, sure looks like the same paint scheme.

On his own FB page he said it was him and it happened on landing. The wheels just folded in because the "Over centre brace bolt broke...".

Was indeed me. The right main gear did indeed collapse on the landing roll. What the real reason is be investigated..

That is so sad to see. I used to look at TRR parked close to my hangar at AME aviation and drooled over her many a time. Always wanted to see her fly and now this :(

It is probably one of the best looking planes for me.

Sorry to see it like this. Have seen it many times at Wonderboom. Hopefully it will be fixed.
