May 8, 2007, Kenosha, Wis., Cessna 172P


The airplane was substantially damaged during a bounced landing. The pilot stated he was too high on final approach and began to slip the airplane. As he started his flare, he noticed he was still too high and decided to reduce power to idle. The airplane bounced, became airborne and bounced again. He kept the flare going and touched down again, finally staying on the ground. He taxied to the ramp, shut down the airplane and discovered the nose-wheel tire was flat.
