Cessna 152, G-GFIA
Following an uneventful local flight the aircraft touched down heavily on the grass Runway 09L. A large bounce ensued and the pilot was unable to take remedial action before the aircraft landed, the nose landing gear collapsed and the aircraft came to a stop on its nose. Neither occupant was injured. The pilot assessed the cause of the accident as insufficient flare during the landing, allowing the nose wheel to impact the runway before the main landing gear.
