Narrative:
15 Jun 2021: Tecnam P2008-JC, G-RFCB, RAF Waddington Flying Club, damaged when 'bounced' on landing at RAF Waddington, Lincolnshire. The incident was the subject of an AAIB Correspondence-only report, pulished on 12 August 2021, and the following is an excerpt from it...

"The aircraft bounced multiple times during landing. The student pilot, who was flying solo, attempted to go around. The aircraft landed on its nose gear which collapsed, causing the propeller to strike the runway. The nose gear, propeller and lower engine cowling were damaged, and there was a leak from the fuel tank in the right wing."
