Category:Accident
Location:Newport State Airport - KEFK, VT -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Lebanon, NH (LEB)

Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
According to the pilot, the airplane was about 10 feet above the ground during the approach to landing when it "dropped hard" onto the runway. An eyewitness stated that the wings shook from side to side, the airplane fell to the ground, and the sound of runway impact could be heard. According to marks on the runway, the airplane impacted nose first and then bounced and impacted the runway again. Calculations based on the propeller strike marks associated with the first impact indicated a ground speed of about 38 knots. The impact resulted in substantial damage to the engine firewall. The pilot reported no preimpact malfunctions or anomalies that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The pilotís failure to maintain adequate airspeed during the approach, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall and hard landing.
