Narrative:The airplane experienced a hard landing. The pilot configured the airplane with a high angle of attack and was flying at a slow airspeed. While over the runway designation markings, the stall warning light flashed. About 50 to 60 feet above ground level, the airplane stalled, and the nose gear contacted the runway surface, with the main landing gear following immediately thereafter. The airplane was about 10 to 15 degrees in a nose down attitude when it contacted the runway. The nose wheel broke off immediately after contact, and the airplane skid on its nose a short distance down the runway. The damage to the airplane was consistent to that of a hard landing. After inspecting the landing gear, investigators found no evidence of abnormalities or mechanical malfunctions.
