According to an air traffic controller who was in the control tower at the time of the accident, he observed the Cessna 182Q "going extremely fast" while on final approach. While attempting to land, the airplane "bounced down the runway," and then climbed up to rejoin the traffic pattern. The controller then cleared the pilot to land a second time. During the second landing, the controller observed "white smoke" and tire debris emanating from under the forward portion of the airplane. According to the pilot, all of the airplane's systems were functioning properly. He stated that a "loss of wind" made the airplane "suddenly" stop flying while it was 5 to 10 feet above the runway and that the nose landing gear had impacted the runway, substantially damaging the airplane.
