Cessna A150L Aerobat, G-BOYU
Whilst attempting to land with the sun directly in his eyes the student pilot’s seat moved back slightly and he inadvertently applied excessive aft elevator. During the ensuing bounce, he attempted to level the aircraft but had difficulty in assessing the aircraft pitch attitude. The aircraft nose landing gear struck the ground and collapsed.
