Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
According to the pilot, his landing approach was "a little low" so he added power to compensate. Upon touchdown, the airplane bounced "much higher" then he had previously experienced. He increased airspeed in an attempt to "make a more controlled landing." The airplane touched down and bounced "even higher." The airplane touched down a third time, and the nose wheel collapsed. Examination of photographs revealed structural damage to the bottom of the fuselage aft of the firewall.

Probable Cause: The pilot's improper recovery from a bounced landing, which resulted in porpoising and collapse of the nose landing gear.
