Summary

The pilot reported that the aircraft was at a critical stage of the approach when it was struck by a severe wind gust. There was insufficient height available to manoeuvre the aircraft and remain clear of the ground. A go-around was considered, however the pilot felt that any application of power would make matters worse. During the attempt to counter the effect of the wind gust the right wing struck the ground, the aircraft landed heavily and the nosewheel collapsed.
