While on approach for a touch-and-go landing, the flight instructor directed the student pilot to go around when the airplane was about 30 feet above the ground. The student pilot added power, and the airplane began to roll and yaw to the left. The student applied the left rudder, and the instructor announced that he would take control of the airplane. The student pilot did not fully relinquish control of the airplane to the instructor, and the airplane impacted the ground. No preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failure were reported by the instructor.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The student pilot’s improper flight control input during a go-around and his interference with the flight instructor’s attempted remedial actions.
