Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Ground collision
Injuries: 3 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

The flight instructor reported that, he was providing simulated instrument flight instruction to a private pilot rated student. Following the instruction, due to increased wind and rain and decreasing visibility the instructor took the controls while returning to the airport.

Prior to touchdown, the instructor kept the airplane in ground effect to reduce the airspeed and the airplane touched down about halfway down the 3,578 ft. runway, bounced twice, and touched down again. He then applied brakes and the student "got the flaps up." After exiting the runway onto a taxiway, the instructor applied brakes but the "airplane was still traveling too fast when [it] entered the ramp" and veered slightly left of taxiway centerline striking three unoccupied airplanes on the ramp.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left-wing and left-wing spar box.

The instructor reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The automated weather observation station located on the airport reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 200° at 16 knots, gusting 16 knots, 1 statute miles, broken clouds at 3,900 ft, temperature 81°F, dew point 73°F, with heavy rain.. The airplane landed on runway 27C.
