AAIB investigation to Cessna 152, G-MASS

Left wing struck windsock pole during taxiing, Stow Maries Airfield, Essex, 23 September 2016.


On taxiing to the parking area from Runway 20, the pilot’s attention was diverted towards a replica SE5a ahead of him, and so failed to notice the windsock pole, marked with a traffic cone (which he had seen), to the left. The left wing of the aircraft struck the pole causing the aircraft to veer to the left before coming to a stop.
