The Gliding Federation Australia investigation reports that after a winch launch the student pilot flew locally for about ten minutes. He then realised that he was getting low and turned back towards towards the airfield. Late in his approach he saw power lines, dived under them, and was forced to outland in a paddock adjacent to the airfield. At the end of the landing roll the glider collided with a fence and was substantially damaged.
