The aircraft was being flown from Biggin Hill to Sibson as part of a multiple-leg flight from its home base near Cambridge. The weather was fine, with a calm or very light surface wind. The pilot flew a normal approach to Runway 15 at Sibson but made a heavy landing, resulting in the nose landing gear collapsing. There had been no unusual landing gear indications or warnings prior to the accident. The pilot attributed the hard landing to handling error.
