Détails:
The aircraft took off from Grand Canyon at around 09:00 for the second tour flight that day. After the tour, Canyon flight 5 was cleared for a runway 21 approach. The plane travelled down the runway about 5 feet in the air for about 1000 feet before it bounced on landing. The aircraft travelled 1000 feet and touched down on the right wingtip, crushing the aileron/flap hinge up into the wing. Full power was applied for a go-around. Control was lost as the aircraft attained an extreme nose-up attitude and the aircraft crashed into trees.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Improper pilot techniques and crew coordination during the landing attempt, bounce, and attempted go-around."
