The student pilot had been authorized to carry out two solo circuits before proceeding to the training area to practise steep turns. Runway 16 was in use with a wind from the South South-West at about 12 kntos. On her first landing approach the student misjudged the flare. The aircraft ballooned and then landed heavily. It then became airborne for a short distance before again landing heavily, resulting in the nose gear collapsing. This accident was not the subject of an on-scene investigation.
