NTSB Factual Report

The airplane sustained substantial damage when it nosed over during landing. The pilot stated, "By the time we got up, I decided it was getting too dark so I circled back around to land. As I descended, I was not able to see as well as normal. As we touched the ground, we bounced a little, then touched down. The front wheel broke off which caused the nose of the airplane to go into the ground which then caused the plane to flip over onto its top." The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions with the airplane in reference to the flight.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's inadequate recovery from a bounced landing leading to the nose gear overload.
