Narrative:A two seater aircraft, a Cessna 152, suffered a nose wheel collapse when it landed on the runway at Shoreham airport just before 3.30 pm on 14 August 2012. The plane has suffered damage to its nose, propeller and undercarriage. The pilot was not injured. According to the following extract from the official AAIB report into the accident:
|C/n / msn:|| 152-82527|
|Fatalities:||Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 2|
|Airplane damage:|| Substantial|
|Location:||Runway 20, Shoreham Airport, Shoreham, West Sussex -
|Destination airport:||Shoreham, West Sussex (EGKA)|
"The pilot was carrying out practice circuits at Shoreham Airport; the reported wind was 180º at 6 knots. On the first approach to Runway 20, the pilot stated that he was a “little fast”, and touched down “slightly” hard before bouncing back into the air.
The second and final approach was again fast but on touchdown the nose landing gear collapsed. As it collapsed, the nose wheel and nose wheel leg both separated from the aircraft and the propeller sustained damage as it struck the ground. The lower surface of the aircraft nose also sustained damage as the aircraft slid and veered to the left, stopping at the edge of the paved runway. The pilot was uninjured".
Damage sustained to airframe: Nose wheel assembly, nose, propeller and radio antenna
