NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that he was practicing takeoff and landings. The first two landings were good. On the third landing the airplane landed hard and bounced, so the pilot performed a go-around. The subsequent landing was good, but the nose wheel had a shimmy. Inspection of the airplane revealed that the nose wheel bearing and firewall were damaged.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper flare, which resulted in a hard landing.
