engine prop strike will require a t&i,(tear down and inspection). it could even require a new engine or major rebuild. engine mounting cradle may have
taken damage due to sudden torsion loads. the belly pan is probably repairable with little damage. i helped rebuild a mooney several years ago, in
which the student pilot forgot to lower the gear when he landed. the damage wasn't as bad as you would think, the hardest part was getting the plane
off the runway without doing additional damage when we lifted it, with 2 forklifts and some nylon choker straps we gently picked up the plane and then
let down the gear.
