I've found a worse one!

An overenthusiastic test flight in 1982 to check out the capabilities of the, then new, MD-80.  Don't try this at home.

Sorry, I might be wrong, but I thought I remembered that as being on purpose to test the strenth of the empenage / tail assembly.....could totally be smoking some good stuff too though.

The setiva scenario is correct.

This was an accident. Here is the NTSB report.

Pilot error + many instruments not working or disconnected.

You are correct that it was a test flight  (actually a certification flight to determine the shortest horizontal distance required for landing). This required a reasonably hard landing, but not THAT hard.

Cocky? How about got slow. This was probably caused by gusting winds. Most likely the airplane was at Vref while the gust was active then it stopped causing the speed to drop below Vref and it falls out of the sky.
