Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The unregistered aircraft impacted the ground in an uncontrolled descent during a go-around. While landing, the aircraft touched down hard upon the landing strip, and the nose gear sheared off. The pilot performed a go-around and during the turn from the crosswind leg to the downwind leg of the airport traffic pattern, the aircraft slowed and entered a spiraling turn to the ground. The entire aircraft was at the accident site excluding the nose gear, and the damage was consistent with a nose-down impact. The nose gear was located about 1/4-mile from the accident site. According to the supplier of the aircraft, loss of the nose gear would not result in a center of gravity shift that exceed limits. Control system continuity was established during an examination of the wreckage. No preimpact anomaly was found with the engine or propeller. The aircraft exceeded the ultralight weight limitations in 14 CFR Part 103, and the pilot did not hold a flight training exemption. CAUSE: the pilot's failure to maintain an adequate airspeed during a go-around, which resulted in a stall/spin.
