Location:La Cholla Airpark - 57AZ, Oro Valley, Tucson, AZ -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Oro Valley, AZ (57AZ)
Destination airport:Oro Valley, AZ (57AZ)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot reported that during the landing he set the rear two wheels down and tried to hold the nose gear up longer than he previously had. As the trike began to slow, the nose gear slammed onto the runway and collapsed. After the aircraft slid to a stop in the middle of the runway, it tipped over onto its right side, which resulted in substantial damage to the right wing.
Probable Cause: The pilotís failure to lower the nose landing gear in time to prevent it from slamming onto the runway and collapsing.
