DHC-1 Chipmunk 22, G-BDDD and Vans RV-4, G-IIGI


Both aircraft had landed on Runway 21R for the LAA Sywell Rally; the RV-4 had landed first and marshalls were holding it at A2. The pilot of the Chipmunk stated that, whilst taxiing, he looked down to find his taxiway chart and failed to see either the stationary RV-4 on the taxiway ahead or the marshal signalling for the aircraft to hold until it was too late to take corrective action. The collision did not cause any injuries but both aircraft sustained significant damage.
