Piper PA-28-161 Cherokee Warrior II, G-BOHA
The student pilot was making a second attempt at landing in a 10 kt crosswind on his second solo flight. He had rejected the first landing after having directional control difficulties on touchdown. He experienced similar difficulties on his second landing, and was not able to correct the situation with full rudder pedal. An attempt at a further go-around was not successful and the aircraft left the hard runway with significant power applied. The pilot eventually brought the aircraft to rest after the nose leg collapsed.
