He performed two go-arounds, departed the traffic pattern, then returned for a full-stop landing on runway 13. The wind velocity had increased but he continued his approach. The airplane drifted left of centerline, and he added full power to perform a go-around. The airplane stalled when the flight was at 50 feet, descended left wing low, and impacted the ground.
