Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot lost control of the airplane during landing. The pilot stated that a gust of wind lifted the right wing. He reported that he thought he overcorrected for the wind, causing the airplane to land on the right main landing gear first, bouncing it into the air. The airplane then landed a second time on the left main landing gear, and bounced again. The pilot stated that he then inadvertently pushed forward on the control column and landed a third time on the nose landing gear. The nose landing gear collapsed, and the propeller struck the runway.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain control of the airplane during landing. A factor was the gust of wind.
