Summary

After a lesson of simulated instrument flying and some stall revision, the student was carrying out a practice forced landing at Wallacia Airstrip. He did not hear the instruction to go around and the aircraft touched down. At this point, the instrument hood, which he was still wearing, fell down over his eyes. As he moved the hood, he displaced his headphones. He heard the instructor say "full power", so he retracted flap and then applied full power. The instructor, realising the aircraft was too far along the strip to successfully clear the trees on the climb out, took over, closed the throttle and applied full braking. The grass was wet and the aircraft overran the strip and struck a fence. The nosegear collapsed.
