AAIB investigation to DHC-1 Chipmunk 22, G-BXHF

Aircraft struck fence post whilst parking, Goodwood Aerodrome, West Sussex, 12 July 2014.

Summary:

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.
