Cessna 152, G-BTDW


The aircraft touched down and bounced twice on Runway 25 at Carlisle Airport. On the third touch down the nose landing gear collapsed and the propeller contacted the runway surface. The pilot assessed the cause of the accident as a combination of factors but not executing a go around allowed the aircraft to touch down a third time.
