Nose landing gear failure, Private airstrip, Peasemore Common, Berkshire, 19 August 2017

Summary:

Whilst the pilot was reducing speed following an aborted takeoff, the aircraft hit an area of rough ground towards the end of the grass airstrip. This caused the nose landing gear leg to fail. The section of gear leg still attached to the aircraft then dug into the ground and the aircraft pitched inverted, damaging the propeller and the wing.
