Narrative:After a 2,5 test flight, the co-pilot moved into the left hand seat to carry out 2 familiarisation circuits and landings under the supervision of the pilot-in-command. On the first approach, the aircraft was a little below the approach path. The plane bounced to about 20 feet. After a heavy nosewheel-first touchdown, the aircraft bounced again to about 50 feet. The One-Eleven then struck the runway very heavily, again in a nose-down attitude. The landing gear collapsed and the right main gear broke off during the slide.
