DA40 D Diamond Star, G-CCHA
The student pilot had just landed from a solo flight and was taxiing back to parking. After making a left turn he became distracted during a radio call and did not notice that the aircraft was still rolling towards Hangar No 3. He tried to turn away but the aircraft’s right wing tip hit the side of the hangar; this caused the aircraft to pivot to the right and the propeller struck the hangar door. The pilot shut down the engine and vacated the aircraft.
