|Nature:||Passenger - Non-Scheduled/charter/Air Taxi|
|Departure airport:||Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG/LFPG)|
|Destination airport:||Monastir-Habib Bourguiba International Airport (MIR/DTMB)|
|Investigating agency: ||BEA|
|Confidence Rating:|| Accident investigation report completed and information captured|
Weather was CAVOK, wind 110/8, temp. 28C. The crew heard an unusual sound upon touchdown from a bounced landing. Subsequent crew inspection with a flashlight did not detect any damage. Upon return to CDG, maintenance personnel were redirected to inspect. The maintenance inspection revealed damage to the lower lob skin, tail skid, 15 stringers and 2 fuselage webs.
The hard landing resulted from insufficient thrust reduction at the time of the first touchdown and the absence of a go-around after the bounce. The extension of the lift dumpers at the time of the thrust reduction and the additional attitude introduced by the pilot caused the fuselage to rub on the runway.
The non-detection of the damage to the aircraft was not a factor in the accident but was a risk factor for the following flight.
