No matter what you fly, it is always important to land on centerline.

Where is the Snowspeeder when you need to drag something away.
When they're fixing it, they might consider a wheel fitting rather than those damned skids for the landing gear.
A crane on the deck of the carrier is probably good idea, too.
See the problem is that the pilot forget to put the wings together for landing. This is what happens when you let an inexperienced pilot fly these things.
"R2 that stabilizer's broken loose again! See if you can ohshitnevermind…BrownAlert!"
Huh, I woulda thought repulsors and an astromech droid would make a carrier landing relatively easy. Then again, this guy also forgot to fold his S-foils before trying to set 'er down…
If you notice he didn't even extend the landing skid.
Perhaps it got knocked off as a consequence of his poor landing technique.
I don't see any signs of damage from the skid nor any sign that the skid was ever deployed. So for now I will say that it was still retracted.
It was a clean break!
On a skid that retracts forward? It would surely tweak the metal and shear off the hatch and all sorts of obvious damage… No damage means no sheared off skid. Period.
Is it too late to change my answer to 'Landing gear stuck up'?
No It's not.
