Unfallbericht:
On final approach to land at Telluride Airport, CO (TEX), the Cessna 560 Citation Encore encountered an increasing headwind accompanied by a "Caution Wind shear" audio alert, while approximately 50 feet above ground level. The airplane landed hard and bounced several times before departing the left side of the runway. The airplane came to rest in an upright position and the pilot and copilot were able to exit unassisted. The forward pressure bulkhead, fuselage, and left aileron sustained structural damage during the accident. In addition, the nose wheel assembly was found separated from the fuselage. An examination of the nose wheel assembly revealed that the fracture was consistent with an overload failure.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's failure to maintain control during landing. A factor was the reported wind shear."
