Savannah Jabiru(4), G-CDAT
The pilot reported that he was making a powered approach to Runway 26 at Eshott, with a surface wind from 240° at about 18 to 25 kt. At about 6 ft above the runway the pilot encountered what he described as wind shear, causing the aircraft to descend suddenly, contact the runway firmly and bounce. It then stalled and landed again in a nose low attitude, causing damage to the propeller and the nose leg structure. The aircraft came to a halt on the runway. The pilot shut down and secured the aircraft before vacating with his passenger. Both were unharmed.
