Unfallbericht:
ERA Aviation Flight 878, a Beech 1900C, registration N575U, on a flight from Anchorage International Airport, experienced a landing gear collapse after landing on runway 22 at Homer Airport, Alaska.
The captain was the pilot flying and conducted a visual approach to runway 22. The aircraft was configured on final approach with the landing gear down and the flaps selected to landing. The first officer indicated that, after touchdown on the runway, while intending to retract the flaps, he inadvertently selected the landing gear handle up. The nose landing gear and both main landing gear retracted and the airplane slid to a stop on the runway resting on the lower fuselage, wings, and engine nacelles.
The aircraft sustained substantial damage.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The first officer inadvertently selecting the landing gear handle up after touchdown during the landing rollout. Contributing to the accident was the first officer's decision to reconfigure the airplane while still on the active runway."
