The aircraft experienced a loss of control in the landing flare which resulted in the aircraft bouncing. The pilot elected to conduct a missed approach. On the subsequent approach, a successful flare and landing was conducted, however the nose wheel of the aircraft collapsed during roll out, resulting in additional damage. A post accident investigation could not determine any pre-existing defect in the nose leg and the failure was most likely due to over stress during the initial landing attempt.
