Cessna 152, G-TALA
The pilot had decided to practise circuit flying in order to build up her hours. After a touch-and-go on Runway 26, the weather conditions deteriorated to a point where she felt uncomfortable to continue, so she decided to land. On touchdown, after the aircraft had bounced several times, the nose landing gear collapsed. The wind at the time was reported as southerly, 8 kt to 9 kt.
