"The Canadian TSB reported a subsequent detailed inspection revealed wrinkles in the fuselage skin, a damaged left nose gear door, damage to the forward pressure bulkhead and the nose gear assembly. The occurrence was rated an accident, a level 4 investigation was opened."

"In this occurrence, the aircraft’s speed was not reduced from its approach speed (VREF + 20 KIAS) to the touchdown speed (VREF). The nose of the aircraft was lowered at a higher rate than normal, resulting in damage to the aircraft. These highlight the importance of flight crews adhering to operational procedures and techniques."
