Narrative:
The Cessna 208B aircraft operated by Nouvel Air Parachuting, was on a skydiving flight from Saint-Esprit Aerodrome (CES2), Canada. Following the drop of parachutists, the pilot returned to CES2 and, on the visual approach to runway 20, the aircraft encountered a wind shear on short final. The aircraft lost altitude and the pilot was not able to slow the descent; it collided heavily with the ground. The wheel of nose collapsed, and the propeller contacted the ground. The pilot and the passenger on board were not injured.
