On September 5, 1993, at approximately 1630 hours mountain daylight time, a Cessna 182H, N2076X, landed hard and bounced at the Salt Lake City, Utah, Number 2 Airport. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and no flight plan was filed for the local flight. The airplane was substantially damaged and the certificated commercial pilot, the sole occupant, was not injured.

The pilot reported that this was her first solo flight in this type airplane. While practicing touch and go landings, the pilot reported that the first landing was made without incident. During the second landing, the pilot stated that the airplane flared too high and bounced then landed hard.

The damage to the airplane was not determined until September 16, 1993, when a mechanic noticed damage to the firewall and fuselage skin wrinkles.
