The crew initiated a “Go-Around”. During the second approach, the aircraft bounced consecutively three times, before coming to rest on the runway.

An operator encountered a lateral runway excursion. In this particular event the aircraft sustained minor landing gear damage but the contributing factors are in common with more serious incidents associated with adverse weather conditions (heavy precipitation, reduced visibility and a wet runway). This highlights the benefit of threat and error management training.
