Vans RV-9A, G-CGXR

Summary:

The aircraft was landing on Runway 25 at Carlisle when the accident occurred. The weather was generally fine, with a very light westerly wind. The pilot reported that he flew a normal approach, but flared the aircraft too high. It landed heavily and bounced before touching down again, nose wheel first. This caused the nose landing gear to collapse. The pilot brought the aircraft to a stop on the runway. Neither occupant was injured, and both were able to vacate the aircraft in the normal manner.
