Pierre Robin HR200/120B, G-BXDT
The student pilot was outbound to Durham Tees Valley Airfield from Leeds to complete his qualifying solo cross country flight. On approach to Runway 23 he noticed his approach speed was slightly high but decided to continue. The aircraft was observed to touch down initially on the nose landing gear before bouncing back into the air. The pilot applied a small amount of power; however the aircraft touched down again and continued to bounce several times along the runway before the pilot could regain control. During this process the propeller struck the ground. The pilot taxied the aircraft off the runway and exited the aircraft normally without injury.
