Aircraft: Cessna 150. Injuries: None. Location: Red Oak, Iowa. Aircraft damage: Substantial.
What reportedly happened: The student pilot was on the third leg of a VFR solo cross-country flight. He was on approach to an airport where he planned to do a touch and go, then return to his initial departure airport.
During his first and second approaches for the touch and go he executed go-arounds due to what he described as turbulence when the airplane came into ground effect.
