Ikarus C42 FB100, G-WSSX

Summary:

Following a number of dual circuits from Runway 24 at Old Sarum Airfield, the student pilot’s instructor sent him off for his first solo circuit from the same runway. Whilst landing after completion of this circuit, the student flared a little too high, the airspeed decayed, the nose dropped, and the aircraft landed heavily on its nose wheel. This caused the nose landing gear to collapse and the propeller to strike the ground.
