Summary

The pilot reported he was making an approach to land on the 090 deg grass strip in nil wind conditions. The approach to this strip is over a steep gully. The pilot said that approaching the flare the sink rate suddenly increased and airspeed washed off. He applied full power but not in time to prevent the aircraft landing heavily. The left main landing gear collapsed, the propeller and left wingtip struck the ground and the aircraft slid for about 100 metres, coming to rest at the left edge of the strip.
