The pilot reported that on the first approach, the windy conditions affected his alignment to the runway, so he chose to perform a go-around. On the second attempt, the alignment was good, and the approach seemed normal until the flare. The pilot said that he flared the airplane a bit too much.

Examination revealed a buckled firewall, and sheet metal damage on top of the wing.
