Piper PA-28-161 Cherokee Warrior II, G-LAZL and Rockwell Commander 112B Commander, G-IMPX

Summary:

G-LAZL was parked facing the left side of G-IMPX. The pilot of G-LAZL started the aircraft and, after conducting his initial checks, began to taxi the aircraft. He then undertook a brake check before commencing a turn to the left, to avoid G-IMPX. During the turn he realised that his right wingtip would not clear G-IMPX’s left wing and he attempted to tighten the turn, while applying the brakes and reducing the power to idle. Before he could bring it to a stop, G-LAZL’s right wingtip struck the rear of G-IMPX’s left aileron.
