Piper Warrior's nose gear collapsed after bouncing down the runway on landing

Aircraft: Piper PA 28-235 (ZS-EKB)

Time/Date: 29 July 2006 1000Z

Location: Bethlehem Aerodrome, South Africa

Cause of crash: The pilot landed the aircraft in wind shear conditions, which caused the approach speed to be in excess of the correct approach speed causing the plane too balloon upon the flare and the pilot failed to initiate the go around but decided to try and land and hit the runway several times before the nose gear collapsed.
