Narrative:
The pilot was conducting a series of solo circuits and landings into a wind of 10 to 20 knots, with occasional gusts to 25 knots. On the third approach, the aircraft had been flared for landing when it suddenly ballooned and a wing dropped. Full power was applied, but the aircraft sank heavily to the strip and the nose gear collapsed. The student pilot had reacted correctly when a sudden wind gust was encountered, however he had been unable to prevent a heavy touchdown. This accident was not the subject of an on scene investigation.
