The solo student was landing on Runway 20 at Arclid Airfield. He had abandoned the first two attempts but, whilst happy with all aspects of the approach, found that the aircraft hopped on touchdown and started to drift to the left. He was unable to prevent the aircraft from entering a tall crop by the side of the runway and falling over onto its right side.
Neither the instructor nor the student could explain the reason for the loss of directional control.
