Narrative:
The aircraft was on short final approach when a wind gust shifted it to the right of the runway. The pilot corrected the approach but the aircraft encountered another gust which caused the right wing to drop. The pilot then applied full power for a go-around and levelled the aircraft but the aircraft landed heavily on all three wheels with full power still applied. The nose wheel dug into the soft surface and broke off, causing the aircraft to overturn.
