February 06, Camden, Ark. / Beech King Air


At 0815 central time, a Beech 200 was damaged in a hard landing at Camden/Harrell Field, but none of the eight aboard was injured. The pilot executed the GPS 18 approach to runway 18 and broke out of the clouds at about 900 feet msl. During the landing flare, at approximately 15 to 20 feet above the runway, the pilot felt a shudder, the aircraft dropped, then touched down hard on both main landing gear. The left main gear sheared, the left wing struck the ground and the nose gear was damaged. The airplane touched down within the first 800 feet of the 6,501-foot runway.
