Sequence of Events. The instructor pilot said that his student had completed four dual circuits with very satisfactory landings off each approach. During the fifth approach, the student flared the aircraft too high and before the instructor could take control, it stalled and struck the ground in a heavy landing. The left main gear collapsed and the aircraft came to rest on its bent nose gear and left wing tip. Analysis. The instructor was unprepared for the high roundout following the student's good landing performance on the previous occasions. He did not take control in time to prevent a heavy landing.
