On landing the aircraft bounced about four times before the nose gear broke off. The aircraft overturned, coming to rest on the runway. Gusty wind conditions prevailed at the time of landing. When the aircraft bounced on the initial touchdown, the pilot did not take suitable corrective actions and a porpoising situation developed until the nose gear failed.
