On my second solo flight I came back to do a few landings, and after the first landing I applied full power for takeoff to which the engine responded by just shutting off on me. Not sure if my mixture was too lean, if I applied power too quickly (which I read can temporarily lean mixture too much to keep the engine running), or something else. My CFI wasn't sure what caused this either.
After an embarrassing talk with ATC I was able to get it started up again just fine, and the plane has ran well ever since, so I'm 99% sure I caused the incident. Just not sure exactly what.
I fly a 1976 Cessna 150M. Airport elevation is 5500 above sea level (hence why I leaned my mixture in the first place, as it's advised in the POH). Weather that day was around 0C but very arid.
