AAIB investigation to AS355N Ecureuil II, G-OLCP

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.
