Summary

All the pilot's previous flying experience was in conventional aircraft. He had operated this aircraft only to the extent of conducting short "hops" along the strip. On this occasion however, he became airborne and flew for about 15 minutes before approaching to land. On late finals as the aircraft flared for landing, the engine power was heard to increase and then decrease. At the same time, the aircraft began to porpoise. The right wing and then the nose struck the ground before the aircraft nosed over.
