PC-12 as well apparently. Don't push forward when you bounce.....

"C-GFLA, A Pilatus PC-12/45 aircraft was conducting a medical transport flight from Iqaluit, NU (CYFB) to Winnipeg/James Armstrong Richardson Intl, MB (CYWG). The aircraft was making a planned fuel stop in Coral Harbour, NU (CYZS) where the winds were reported to be 270 degrees at 15 knots. The touchdown on Runway 34T was firm and the aircraft bounced back into the air. The pilot flying, checked forward with the control column, and the nose-down pitching moment resulted in propeller contact with the runway surface. The aircraft was taxied to the apron. The crew did not note any unusual vibrations or engine parameters. The damage assessment is on-going."
