The pilot was on his fifth local flight of the day landing on the dry grass surface of Runway 21.
During the landing roll, immediately after the main wheels had touched down, the aircraft pitched
forward onto its nose. The aircraft sustained damage to its nose and propeller. Both occupants were uninjured and vacated the aircraft without assistance.
The pilot reported that a gust of wind had caused the tail of the aircraft to rise and he was unable to prevent the nose striking the ground. The meteorological conditions at nearby Luton Airport at 1350 hrs were: surface wind 250/10 kt, visibility greater than 10 km, scattered cloud at 2,000 feet and a surface temperature of +15C.
