Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Heho, aircraft bounced several times on landing on runway 20, some 1,500 feet past its threshold. The last bounce was very rough so the nose gear collapsed. Aircraft skidded on runway and overrun. On soft ground, both main landing gears collapsed and aircraft hit a sand pile before coming to rest. while all 54 occupants were uninjured, aircraft was damaged beyond repair as some blade of the right engine penetrated the fuselage after they hit the sand pile. It appears that the copilot was the PIC at the time of the accident and the approach configuration was not appropriate.
