The aircraft arrived overhead Abbeyshrule airfield at 12.30 hrs. Due to the strength of the runway crosswind, the pilot decided to land the aircraft without flaps. A significant amount of rudder was used due to the crosswind. On landing, all three wheels touched the runway and a slight ballooning of the aircraft took place. The main wheels then touched on again but the pilot realised that the nose wheel had severed from the aircraft. There were no reported injuries and the pilot exited the aircraft in the normal way.
