NTSB Factual Report

During landing, the airplane which was being flown by a student pilot on his first solo cross country flight, bounced, and began to drift to the left of the centerline of the runway. The student attempted to correct but was unable to. He consequently performed a go-around. Images of the student pilot's go-around were captured by a security camera. Review of the captured images revealed that during the go-around, the airplane rolled and turned to the left, while simultaneously pitching up into a nose high attitude. The airplane then pitched nose down while continuing to roll and turn left, before moving out of view of the security camera. Post accident examination of the accident site by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed, that after moving out of view, the airplane impacted the ground, 180 degrees off the runway heading, and nosed over. Examination of the airplane revealed that it had incurred substantial damage to the wings, fuselage, and engine firewall. No preimpact malfunctions of the airplane or engine were discovered.

NTSB Probable Cause

The student pilot's loss of aircraft control during a go-around maneuver following a bounced landing.
