NTSB Factual Report

According to the student pilot of a Cessna 172P, during the landing flare, the airplane "ballooned up a little," and then had a "hard landing." He stated that he performed four more landings, and then taxied the airplane to the hangar without further incident. The pilot further stated that no damage was evident during the postflight examination of the airplane. A subsequent examination by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed a misaligned nose gear assembly, a buckled firewall, buckled fuselage flooring, and a buckled left wing outboard of the wing spar.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper flare, which resulted in a hard landing.
