During the approach, in turbulent air, to Runway 24 the instructor assessed that the aircraft was low and instructed the student to increase power. Instead the student closed the foot throttle.

The aircraft cleared a fence, but after this the student pulled on the control bar, causing the aircraft to pitch forward and to land on the runway in a nose-down attitude.
