Cessna 152, G-BRNE
The student pilot was carrying out solo circuits, using Runway 18, at Redhill. The weather at the time was good with a wind of 7 kt from 210?. After 55 minutes of circuit work the aircraft bounced during landing, after which it porpoised, eventually causing the nose gear to collapse. The student pilot assessed that she should not have flown such a long circuit session and that as a result she may have been starting to suffer from fatigue.
