NTSB Factual Report

The airplane was substantially damaged when the nosewheel fork separated from the aircraft following a bounced landing. The airplane came to rest upside down. The pilot stated that he failed fly a proper glidepath and was too fast on final. He also stated that the airplane touched down in the touchdown zone, but as he crested the small hill on the runway, the airplane bounced two or three times until the nosewheel hit, broke, and the airplane flipped over.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper recovery from a bounced landing which resulted in the collapse of the nose landing gear. The hilly runway was a contributing factor.
