DHC-1 Chipmunk 22A, G-AORW

Summary:

The aircraft had returned to Prestwick from a local flight and was taxiing at slow speed towards the apron, when its left wing struck the right wing of a parked Piper PA-28. The pilot attributed the accident to his misjudgement of the clearance between the two aircraft, brought about by glare from the low sun directly in front of him, restricting his forward visibility.
