Cessna 182S Skylane, G-BXZM
After touchdown the aircraft became airborne again and then bounced a number of times. A heavy touchdown on the nose landing gear following one of the bounces caused the nosewheel to detach. The propeller subsequently struck the ground and the nose landing gear leg progressively dug into the soil, causing the aircraft to pitch over onto its back. The pilot and three passengers suffered minor injuries.
