Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot reported that, after touching down, he realized that the airplane had landed long, so he chose to reject the landing. He then heard a "thump" during the initial climb, so he returned to the airport and landed the airplane. A postaccident examination revealed that the right side of the lower fuselage and cockpit floor had been damaged beneath the copilot/right-front passenger seat. Damage was also observed to an airport sign off the runway's right side. The pilot reported no preaccident failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation and that no flight control issues occurred during the go-around after the impact with the airport sign.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during a rejected landing, which resulted in a collision with an airport sign off the right side of the runway during the transition to the initial climb.
