The pilot was landing the gyroplane on Runway 10 at Kirkbride Airfield, in fine weather and light wind conditions. He executed the flare slightly early, causing the gyroplane to enter an extended float just above the runway. It then dropped to the surface, bounced and rolled over to the right. Although the gyroplane was damaged, the pilot suffered only light bruising.
