According to the pilot, as the airplane touched down, the left main landing gear tire "blew." The airplane veered left, and the pilot lifted it back off the ground. The airplane then banked to the right, experienced an "ugly flare," and lost airspeed before impacting the ground "hard" on the right main landing gear, causing substantial damage. The pilot reported no mechanical deficiencies with the airplane, nor did a postaccident examination of the airframe, to include the left tire, reveal any.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control during landing.
