NTSB Report: http://amelia.db.erau.edu/reports/ntsb/aar/AAR82-02.pdf

They were doing performance landings...One crewmember broke his ankle as a result of the impact...

I didn't read the report, but it looks to me as if they came in way too slow.

They touched down with a 970fpm descent, too.

I think it was Delta that had a mishap very similar to this, back around 1989, in Pensacola, FL. The empennage broke, but did not actually separate from the fuselage. I knew someone who was on the plane. The passengers had to walk from the runway to the terminal, and I'm not sure if they ever got their luggage back. I don't think the NTSB would let them offload any cargo until the investigation was over.

Talk about a bad flight!;P

Reminds me of the impact when one of my not-so-bright instructors decided to give me an engine failure about 100 feet above a runway on takeoff in a Piper Arrow. I did everything right but we still hit HARD.

Getting a CFI doesn't make you smarter.
My wife's instructor hit a tree on final in a Piper Colt, with her in it, and then got out and soloed her.;P
Tore a hole in the fabric near the tail.

When I found out, my wife about had to hog tie me to keep me from going back and breaking his neck.

During my brief stint at PAFB (Plattsburgh Air Force Base, NY) we had a B-47 land hard enough to break its back. The Base CO had the thing on display near the strip for several weeks to kind of remind all of us what air/earth interface was all about.
Nobody did a repeat.
