(thanks avh)
I've attached the audio from Newport News Tower

A PSA Airlines Canadair CRJ-900 on behalf of American Airlines, registration N602NN performing flight AA-5662 from Charlotte,NC to Newport News,VA (USA), landed on Newport News' runway 25 but performed a balked landing and went around reporting they had gone around due to gusting winds. The aircraft positioned for another approach to runway and landed about 10 minutes later. Tower subsequently advised later landings there had been a loss of 15 knots of airspeed on final.

The FAA reported giving the timestamp of the second landing as occurrence time: "AIRCRAFT ON LANDING STRUCK WINGTIP ON RUNWAY, NEWPORT NEWS, VA.", the damage was unknown and the occurrence rated an incident.
