Following a dual check on circuits and landings, the pilot carried out some upper air work before returning for circuit practice. The weather conditions were fine, with light and variable winds. A normal approach was flown but the aircraft bounced slightly on the initial touchdown, and this was followed by two further bounces of increasing magnitude. The pilot persevered with the landing attempt, but the propeller struck the ground and the nosegear collapsed before the aircraft was brought to a halt. This accident was not the subject of an on-scene investigation.
