Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The ATR-72 operated Jet Airways flight 3307 from Delhi to Bhopal, Indore and then back to Delhi, India. The second leg of the flight was uneventful until the final approach. The aircraft bounced on landing, causing the pilot to add power in an attempt to cushion the sink rate. However the aircraft landed hard and bounced again. This was followed with a series of bounces, during which the aircraft migrated from the runway and finally came to full halt on right side close to airport boundary wall. There was no fire.

The Indore runway is 7480 feet (2280 m) long.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Pilot-in-Command in absence of bounce recovery guidance adopted self-perceived technique and kept on adding engine power along with aircraft Pitch manipulations to salvage the aircraft from the bounce on landing, and gravely damaged the aircraft structure."
