Following a dual check, the pilot was authorised to carry out three solo circuits and landings. The first of these was completed satisfactorily, but on the next landing the aircraft bounced and the pilot applied full power in order to go around. Shortly afterwards the aircraft sank, struck the ground with the nosewheel and the left wing, and overturned. The pilot later advised that he had held the control column fully back during the go-around attempt, and he had not raised the flaps from the fully lowered position.
