Narrative:
Starduster Too SA300, G-BOBT: Bounced after landing and landing gear collapsed, White Waltham Airfield, Berkshire, 13 May 2019. The AAIB final report into the incident was published on 10 October 2019, and the following is the summary from that report:

"The pilot was returning to the airfield after a flight in the local area. He reported an uneventful approach behind a Piper PA-28 and he considered his speed and rate of descent to be normal. The wind was reported to be 7 to 10 kt from 120° and the pilot was landing on Runway 11.

After a three-point touchdown the aircraft bounced twice with the second bounce being more severe than the first. The pilot reported that the final landing “was very heavy and led to the collapse of the undercarriage”. In hindsight, he considered that he should have initiated a go-around after the first bounce."

Damage sustained to airframe: Per the above AAIB Report: "Damaged propeller and undercarriage, engine shock-loaded".
