Cessna U206G Stationair, G-LEMO


Following an uneventful local flight the aircraft bounced on landing on Runway 09 at East Winch Airfield, after which it ‘porpoised’, leading to the nose landing gear collapsing. The propeller then struck the grass runway surface before the aircraft came to a halt. The pilot and passengers were unhurt and exited the aircraft normally. The pilot’s assessment of the reason for the accident was that he flared too high during the approach, leading to the bounce which he failed to control.
