Executive Summary:Just prior to touchdown, in good visual meteorological conditions, the co-pilot deliberately flew the aircraft below the glideslope, as he perceived the runway to be short. The approach was de-stabilised and the aircraft landed heavily and bounced, during which the lower rear fuselage struck the runway. The investigation identified that the landing technique employed was incorrect and that the runway length was more than adequate for the aircraft to make a normal landing in the prevailing conditions.
