A Cessna 152 aircraft sustained serious damage in a landing accident at Shek Kong Airfield, Hong Kong. The aircraft was flown by a student pilot during his second solo flight. The flight was uneventful until touch-down at runway 11 when the aircraft bounced and lifted into the air again. Upon its second touchdown, the nose wheel of the accident aircraft hit the ground heavily. The aircraft then veered to the right and stopped at the runway in a nose down position. The student climbed out uninjured. The propeller, nose landing gear and various parts of the aircraft were substantially damaged. There was no fuel leakage or fire.

The following cause was identified:
After a bounced landing, the balked landing procedures, where go-around should be executed, were not performed. Upon its second touch-down, the aircraft had a hard nose landing, which resulted in the stoppage of the rotation of propeller after the blades contacting the ground (i.e. propeller strike), the collapse of the nose landing gear and the subsequent damage to the aircraft.
