Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The student pilot of the tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that, while practicing takeoff and landings, the airplane landed hard with "a big bounce," and the right wing came up. He attempted to correct by adding power and initiating a go-around. Subsequently, the airplane ground looped, exited the runway, and came to rest inverted.
The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right wing.
The pilot reported that there were no preimpact mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
The airport’s automated weather reporting station reported that, about 15 minutes after the accident, the wind was from 300° at 5 knots and that visibility was 10 statute miles. The pilot landed the airplane on runway 26.

Probable Cause: The student pilot's improper landing flare, which resulted in a hard, bounced landing, and his subsequent failure to maintain directional control, which resulted in a runway excursion and ground loop.
