Cessna 152, G-BWNC
The student had satisfactorily flown three circuits with her instructor who then authorised her to undertake her first solo flight. The wind was light, and variable, and the flight was uneventful until late on the approach when the student felt she was “a little high”. In order to reduce height she pushed the control column slightly forward and then flared the aircraft sufficiently for it to land on both main wheels. The aircraft then bounced three times and on the final touchdown the nose leg collapsed. The student, who was unhurt, made the aircraft safe and informed the Flight Information Service Officer (FISO), by radio, of the accident.
