Vans RV-6A, G-RVPW
After landing, as the aircraft was decelerating through 25kt, its nosewheel dug into an area of soft ground. The nose landing gear collapsed and the aircraft tipped onto its nose, damaging the propeller and forward fuselage, and causing the engine to be shock loaded. The pilot and passenger were uninjured and left the aircraft unaided.
