On the pilot’s second landing attempt, the airplane landed hard on the main landing gear and bounced. The pilot lost control during the bounce, resulting in the airplane touching down hard on the nose landing gear. The nose gear collapsed and the airplane slid sideways off of the runway. The airplane struck obstructions and both main landing gear legs collapsed. The impact caused substantial damage to the fuselage and the left wing. The pilot reported that his airspeed must have been too fast on the first touchdown and that the accident would not have happened if he had just aborted the landing after the first hard bounce.
