NTSB Factual Report

According to the pilot, he inadvertently bounced the airplane two times while performing a landing on runway 26 (7,700 by 75 feet, asphalt). He elected to abort the landing and perform a go-around. The pilot stated that after the second bounce he lost his crosswind correction and the airplane departed the runway to the north. One of the main landing gear contacted the ground and dug in. The airplane rotated around 120 to 180 degrees and came to rest on is belly. Both main landing gear separated. The airframe on the left side, under the cabin door, was bent and the fuselage aft of the cabin door was wrinkled. An examination of the airplane's systems, conducted by the FAA, revealed no anomalies.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control during the landing.
