AAIB investigation to Beech 200 Super Kingair, G-KVIP

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

Summary:

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.
