On June 12, 1997, at about 1352 eastern daylight time a Cessna 152, N4929B, operated by a solo student pilot, collided with the runway while attempting to land on runway 34, at Cambridge Dorchester Airport Cambridge, Maryland. The student pilot and sole occupant was not injured, however, the airplane sustained substantial damage. Visual Meteorological conditions prevailed and a VFR flight plan was filed for this cross-country flight. The flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 CFR Part 91.

The pilot stated to the FAA that upon her arrival to the Cambridge Airport she entered the traffic pattern. On final approach to runway 34 the airspeed was stabilized at 60 knots, and the pilot felt as if she was being pushed. When she flared for landing, the airplane floated, so she increased the pitch to slow down. She then stated that the airplanes main tires struck the runway and the airplane bounced back into the air. She tried to control the airplane and landed on the runway again and felt the nose fall and the propeller strike the runway. The airplane came to rest still on the runway with the nose gear collapsed
