A Tecnam P2002 JF Sierra landed on runway 23 at Malta-Luqa Airport in good metrological conditions. The aircraft stalled during the flare maneuver resulting in a hard landing on the nosewheel. This caused the propeller and the right wing to hit the ground which caused considerable damage to the propeller, the wing tip assembly and the engine to seize. Following the impact, the aircraft veered left, and in an attempt to stop the aircraft from entering grass, heavy braking was exercised

The Bureau of Air Accidents (Malta) has determined the probable cause of this accident is a slowspeed stall.
