According to the pilot's accident report, this was her second solo flight, and he instructor observed the flight. The takeoff and landing were without incident. During the second landing approach to runway 01R, she flared prematurely and "pushed the nose down to correct." She flared again but was too late and the airplane landed hard and bounced. The student pushed the nose down and the airplane struck the runway, collapsing the nose gear. Post-accident inspection revealed the firewall was buckled, some engine mounts were broken, and the right wing skin was wrinkled.
