AAIB investigation to Beech 200 Super Kingair, G-KVIP

Aircraft struck ground equipment, Newquay Airport, 31 December 2014.


After refuelling at Newquay Airport, the pilot was taxiing to depart when the right propeller of the aircraft struck ground equipment. It is likely that the position of a bowser during refuelling, and the pilot’s position in the aircraft, contributed to the pilot not seeing the ground equipment before the aircraft struck it.
