No injuries but significant structural, landing gear, engine and prop damage- quickly whisked away for extensive repairs- not a minor ‘prang’ , a serious and reportable landing accident that wasn’t.

'mikehallam' - the whole point of reporting an accident, or significant incident, to the relevant authorities is to try to help prevent others making the same mistakes. Also to hep build up a picture of where problems lie. If you don't report, things are lass likely to improve. People may get hurt or killed who might otherwise have learned and lived.
This was also a major part of the purpose behind the CHIRP process, and the attempts to move away from a blame culture.

So hiding 'minor prangs' really is not clever..
