AAIB investigation to DHC-1 Chipmunk 22, G-BXHF
Aircraft struck fence post whilst parking, Goodwood Aerodrome, West Sussex, 12 July 2014.
The aircraft had arrived at Goodwood for the ‘Chip Fest’ event. The pilot was manoeuvring the aircraft to park at the designated temporary parking area when the aircraft struck a permanent wooden fence. The aircraft was pointing approximately in-line with the direction of the fence which probably made the fence less obvious to the pilot. The aerodrome manager is currently reviewing the markings for obstacles for fly-in events.
