According to the operator of the Beech 65-A90, following an uneventful flight the pilot overflew the destination airport and observed no apparent wind speed or direction on the windsock. After the airplane flew over trees and "dropped down" to approach the runway, it was "a little fast and had a very hard landing." The right main landing gear separated from the airplane before it bounced back into the air. The airplane continued down the runway on the left main and nose landing gear. The pilot shut down both engines as the airplane veered off the right side of the runway. The airplane then began moving "sideways," and the left main landing gear collapsed before the airplane came to rest. The operator did not report any preimpact mechanical failures or malfunctions of the airplane.
