The pilot said that while taxiing to his hangar, the left main landing gear collapsed. The airplane settled onto the left wing's tip tank. The most outboard rib will need replacing, and the wing's upper skin was also wrinkled. The airplane's landing gear had collapsed previously, approximately 6 months ago. No determination was made as to why the landing gear collapsed on this occasion.
