The pilot told the National Transportation Safety Board Investigator that his approach to Casa Grande was normal. During the landing touchdown, the airplane bounced and the pilot attempted to salvage the landing. He said that he either overcontrolled the airplane or hit a brake. The plane veered off the runway, and spun around to the right striking the left wing tip on the ground and separating the left wheel.
