Shortly after what was reported by the pilot as a normal landing the nosewheel fork failed. This allowed the nosegear strut to dig into the strip surface and resulted in the aircraft overturning. The nosewheel fork failure was found to have been caused by overload forces and there was no evidence of any pre-existing defect.
