February 15, 2008, Orlando, Fla., Cessna 172S


The student pilot later stated he was instructed to enter a right base and later was cleared to land. Four nm from the runway, the student pilot stabilized the approach and maintained a constant 65 knots. As the airplane descended over the end of the runway, the pilots attention shifted to runway markings.

The airplane bounced on landing; the pilot recovered with power but the airplane bounced again, impacting the runway nose-low. The airplane sustained damage to its landing gear, limiting right rudder pedal travel.
