Narrative:
A student pilotís first solo flight at Bendigo Airport after completing circuits with a Senior Instructor was incident-free until the flare. As the aircraft entered the flare, the nose yawed slightly to the left and the student immediately attempted to correct this with right rudder (which felt a little stiff). As the wheels hit the runway, the aircraft banked to the right, scraping the right wing before tilting the nose forward and contacting the propeller with the tarmac.
