Narrative:
On July 7, 1993, at 1001 central daylight time, a Piper PA-28- 181, N7630C, was destroyed when it collided with objects and the ground during an aborted landing at Ryan Field in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The airplane, flown by a student pilot, was on a local instructional flight. There was no flight plan filed and visual meteorological conditions prevailed throughout the area. The pilot, the sole occupant, was not injured.

According to the FAA and operator, the student pilot was on his third supervised solo, doing touch and go landings with the instructor on the side of the runway talking to him over a portable radio. The pilot landed on runway 22 and was observed drifting left off the runway into the grass. The instructor told the student to go around. After a delay, the student attempted to execute an aborted landing with the flaps fully deployed. He stated that the airplane would not climb. During the attempt, the student lost control and struck a light stanchion in the parking lot of the local FAA office. After hitting the light, the airplane hit a billboard, came down in an adjacent parking lot, went through a fence, crossed a road, and came to rest in the front yard of a residence.
PROBABLE CAUSE:THE STUDENT PILOT'S FAILURE TO ABORT THE LANDING IN A TIMELY MANNER AND HIS FAILURE TO MAINTAIN DIRECTIONAL CONTROL.
