From a while ago but just seen.

The (light twin) aircraft bounced on landing and a go-around was initiated," said the report.  "At some stage during the touchdown, the right engine propeller blades contacted the runway."

The pilot went for a go-around but after climbing out to "approx 150 feet" it spun in violently, stated to the right.

and then this:-

"The weather was fine and there were no problems with the aircraft said the report."

So it had a prop strike but there were "no problems", seems very unlikely!!

I guess they meant there were no problems with the aircraft prior to the prop strike.

But that's one hell of a "bounce on landing" if a prop on a twin strikes the ground...
