The student pilot stated that he was conducting his second solo instructional flight, and was attempting to land the airplane on a 5,600-foot-long, 150-foot-wide, asphalt runway. He added that he did not properly flare the airplane, and that it touched down and bounced back into the air. He then added power to cushion the landing, the airplane touch down once more, and then veered left off the runway coming to rest upright in a ditch. The pilot did not report any mechanical problems with the airplane, and a postaccident examination revealed the right wing had sustained substantial damage.
