Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:Schenectady, NY -   United States of America

Departure airport:Schenectady, NY (SCH)

Investigating agency: NTSB
After a brief local flight, the pilot returned to the departure airport. During the landing, the airplane touched down on the runway and bounced. The pilot again attempted to land the airplane; however, the airplane’s nose dropped, and the nose landing gear and propeller struck the runway, resulting in a second bounce. The airplane struck the runway again before the pilot regained control of it and taxied it to the hangar. A postaccident examination revealed that the airplane sustained substantial damage to the firewall. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions of the airplane.
Probable Cause: The pilot’s inadequate recovery from a bounced landing, which resulted in a loss of control.
