NTSB Factual Report

According to the pilot, he flew a visual approach at the normal airspeed prescribed by the airplane owner's manual. The pilot stated that once over the runway he began reducing power and, about 60 knots, began to flare the airplane. Subsequently, the airplane ballooned, dropped, and then bounced, striking the tail of the airplane and then the propeller on the runway which resulted in substantial damage to the aft bulkhead. The pilot reported no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or abnormalities with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. The recorded wind at the time of the accident was 120 degrees at 3 knots.

NTSB Probable Cause

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