Aircrew was practicing low approaches and impacted landing approach lights. Suffered some damage to the landing gear, the leading edge flaps, right stabiliser and centerline tank. Thought to be repairable, the aircraft failed a canopy sill longeron Inspection which oddly enough was not related to the mishap event. Both the left and right canopy sill longerons were cracked severely the aircraft was shipped it to AMARG.
