Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The airplane was cleared to land on runway 11L. The flight instructor said that despite the wind 'shifting directions,' correct wind correction was applied and the airplane landed. During the rollout, the nose started shaking and full up elevator was applied. The propeller struck the ground and the airplane came to a halt. But according to the airplane owner who witnessed the accident, the airplane 'was too high for normal glidepath...the plane suddenly descended in a near level flight attitude from an altitude of approximately 40 feet above the runway...the plane hit in a full stalled configuration,' which drove the landing gear into the fuselage. The airplane was destroyed.
Probable Cause: the flight instructor's inadequate supervision of the dual student, which resulted in a hard landing. Contributing factors were the dual student flaring the airplane prematurely, resulting in an inadvertent stall/mush.
