Following several successful landings with an instructor, the student pilot flew solo circuits to grass Runway 08L. He reported the weather to be fine with nil wind, good visibility and a temperature of 12°C.
During the final landing, G-BOSO bounced and then landed in a level or nose-down attitude. The nosewheel leg collapsed, and the aircraft came to a stop on its nose and starboard wingtip.
The pilot believed that it may have been preferable to initiate a go-around after the initial bounce.
