The 62-hour student was unable to recover from a bounced landing and lost control of the single-engine airplane while landing on runway 01. Runway 01 was described as a 5,602-foot-long, by 100-foot-wide asphalt dry runway. The solo student pilot reported that after filing a visual flight rules (VFR) flight plan, she proceeded to her first destination on her solo cross country flight. Before reaching the airport, she listened to the automated surface observing system (ASOS) and announced her landing intentions on the radio. The pilot made a normal approach for landing but reported touching down on all three wheels and then "ballooning." During the second touch-down, the airplane impacted the runway in a nose low attitude and the nose landing gear assembly collapsed. The engine firewall sustained structural damage. Weather was reported as clear skies, 10 miles visibility, with wind from 310 degrees at 6 knots, and an altimeter setting of 30.34 inches of Mercury.
