Rotor down wash hazard, Peterborough Conington Airport, Cambridgeshire, 21 March 2014.
The helicopter was hover taxiing from its parking position towards the runway. As it did so, the tail of a Cessna 152 parked at a nearby refuelling point lifted and, under the influence of the rotor wash and a relatively strong surface wind, the aircraft came to rest inverted.
