During the final approach on ILS runway 21 in the pilots encountered heavy rain conditions and wind gusts plus ascending and descending wind currents.
The aircraft suffered a hard touchdown, bounced, touched down hard again with excessive load on the nose gear causing both nose wheels to separate while the nose gear strut remained intact.
The aircraft still had too much kinetic energy and bounced a second time, touching the third time on the runway and rolling
