Summary

The aircraft had departed Cowra to return to Hoxton Park but as it was passing Lake Wyangala a cabin door became unfastened. The pilot then decided to return to Cowra to rectify the problem. The weather at Cowra was reported as fine with a variable wind gusting to 10 knots. The pilot said the approach was normal, but as the aircraft entered the landing flare a gust of wind caused the aircraft to balloon. The aircraft then touched down but began a series of bounces, culminating in the nose landing gear collapsing. The aircraft then slid a short distance before coming to a halt on the strip.
