A Beech 200 twin-engine airplane, was substantially damaged during a hard landing at Camden-Harrell Field, Arkansas, USA. The airplane was registered to and operated by Lockheed Martin Vought Systems. The eight occupants were not injured.
The pilot reported that while executing the GPS 18 approach to runway 18 at the Camden/Harrell Field Airport, the aircraft descended out of the clouds at 900 feet msl. During the landing flare, at approximately 15 to 20 feet above the runway, he felt a shudder, the aircraft dropped and touched down "hard" separating the left main landing gear. Subsequently, the left wing contacted the ground, and the airplane skidded off the left side of the runway.
Examination of the accident site by the airport manager revealed that the airplane touched down 800 feet from the approach end of the 6,501 foot asphalt runway.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The inadvertent stall as the result of the pilot's failure to maintain proper airspeed. A contributing factor was the pilot's use of the approach flaps setting for the landing."
