NTSB Factual Report

The pilot was landing on runway 21and stated he was high and the airspeed was fast. The pilot raised the nose to bleed off airspeed and altitude was between 10 to 15 feet. The airplane stalled, the nose wheel collided with the runway, the airplane bounced, contacted the runway and started sliding. The airplane departed the right side of the runway, and nosed over inverted. The pilot stated he did not experience any mechanical failure or malfunction with the airplane.
