Collision with a fence during taxiing, Cotswold (Kemble) Airport, Gloucestershire, 10 January 2017.
The pilot was taxiing in after his first solo flight in two years when the right wingtip struck a fence. He reported that this impact turned the aircraft towards the fence line, causing the nose of the aircraft to strike the fence, destroying the propeller and stopping the engine. The pilot was uninjured and vacated the aircraft normally without assistance. He considered that the completion of his first solo in two years had distracted him from the task of taxiing the aircraft.
