Piper PA-28-140 Cherokee, G-AVGI
The student pilot was preparing to take off on his first solo flight. The first attempt was abandoned because he felt that the engine power reduced during the takeoff roll. On the second attempt, the aircraft became airborne but the engine lost all power at about 300 ft. The aircraft force-landed within the airfield perimeter and its nose landing gear collapsed.
