NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that he entered the landing pattern, completed all checklist items, and turned from base to final approach for landing. The airplane was high and fast on final. Upon touchdown, the airplane bounced 2 times and veered to the left before coming to a stop. The nose gear separated, the left main landing gear came up through the left wing resulting in substantial damage, and the right main landing gear folded. Examination of the airframe, flight controls, engine assembly and accessories revealed no anomalies. The pilot stated he did not experience any mechanical problems with the airplane prior to the accident and that he should have made a go-around after the first bounce.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper recovery from a bounced landing.
