When returning to Charleville Airport, the pilot noticed a sudden loss of oil pressure. The aircraft engine was still behaving normally, but they performed a precautionary landing as there were not many options to land had they continued. The pilot made the landing onto a rough dirt road and lost the nose gear, which pulled the aircraft off the road, resulting in a flip over. The pilot and passenger were uninjured.
