NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that during touchdown the airplane bounced and then landed in a flat attitude. The pilot further reported that the nose landing gear collapsed and the airplane skidded down the runway and then nosed over, which resulted in substantial damage to both wing struts and empennage.

The pilot reported that there were no preimpact mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain an adequate descent rate during approach to land and failure to maintain an adequate pitch attitude during the landing flare, which resulted in a bounce, a flat landing, a nose gear collapse, and a nose over.
