Unfallbericht:
TAP Express flight TP1971, an ATR 72-600, suffered a landing accident at Lisbon's Humberto Delgado Airport in Portugal.
During the final approach on ILS runway 21 in the pilots encountered heavy rain conditions and wind gusts plus ascending and descending wind currents.
The aircraft suffered a hard touchdown, bounced, touched down hard again with excessive load on the nose gear causing both nose wheels to separate while the nose gear strut remained intact.
The aircraft still had too much kinetic energy and bounced a second time, touching the third time on the runway and rolling
on with the main gear and over the nose gear structure.
The crew and passengers were disembarked normally without any injury reports between them.

Probable Cause:

Probable causes: PIC/PF decision to proceed and force the landing not complying with the unstabilized approach criteria, with air speed well above the reference VAPP.
Contributing factors: Fatigue may have contributed to the accident by directly affecting pilot (PIC/PF) performance.
