Location:Edmond, OK -   United States of America

Nature:Private
Departure airport:Guthrie, OK (GOK)
Destination airport:
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot stated that he landed fast and the tail-wheel equipped airplane started to float. When the pilot applied brake pressure the airplane started to skid. The pilot then released the brake pressure; however, he thought he was getting too close to the end of the 2,400 foot long grass strip, so he applied 'heavy' braking. Subsequently, the vintage airplane nosed over.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to attain the proper touchdown point due to excessive airspeed and his failure to abort the landing. Factors were the pilot's excessive braking and the short, grass runway.
