NTSB Factual Report

After an uneventful local flight, the pilot was intending to do a few touch-and-go landings at his destination airport. After touchdown and accelerating to takeoff, the pilot mistakenly raised the landing gear handle instead of the flap handle. The nose gear collapsed and the airplane came to a stop on the runway, resulting in substantial damage to the fuselage at the nose gear attachment point. The pilot exited the airplane uninjured.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot raised the landing gear handle instead of the flap handle during a touch-and-go landing, resulting in the collapse of the nose landing gear while accelerating to takeoff.
